Unfortunately, we are canceling the potluck tomorrow due to the rain. We had hoped the weather would turn our way, but it will likely be at least drizzling and the ground will be damp.
We want this potluck to be fun & open for all to enjoy, so a new date will be announced soon. We apologize for the last minute notice, but we’re sure your coworkers, roommates, family, and/or distribution volunteers would love to eat any food you’ve already prepared.
Distribution will go on as planned.
Join us for food and fun! We encourage everyone to bring a dish to share and get to know fellow CSA members.
- Potluck food from members
- Music (we’re still looking for musicians, so let me know if you know anyone that is interested!)
- Coloring for the kids
- Milk Not Jails will be available to answer questions and sign up for additional shares
This is also a chance to meet the farmers and learn more about your CSA.
If you are interested in helping at the potluck or would like to add anything to the event (games, music, etc) please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on Wednesday!

Hello Flatbush Farm Share members,
We are excited to announce a new dairy share for the 2012 summer season. We’ve partnered with Milk Not Jails, who will be delivering Ronnybrook milk, half & half, and butter to our CSA each week.
Purchase a share of any of these products by creating and logging in to your Milk Not Jails account. Whole, low-fat, and non-fat milk are available. Your milk share will be deliciously fresh-bottled the day before it’s delivered to you. Save yourself a weekly trip to the grocery store or farmers market and order your dairy share today! Purchase your weekly dairy needs through Milk Not Jails to support local farms and criminal justice reform.
Once you are registered, you must select a CSA or buying club where you would like to pick up your Milk Not Jails products. Click on “My Account” then “My Delivery Sites.”
Log-in to Milk Not Jails today to purchase your share!
The Flatbush Farm Share will be recruiting and representing our farmers Chris and Katie at Brooklyn Food Coalition‘s FREE Brooklyn Food Conference on Saturday, May 12, 9am-6pm at Brooklyn Tech HS in Ft. Greene (Dekalb Ave and Ft. Greene Pl).
Share your experiences with other urban gardeners and farmers, and help others learn about what we are doing on the ground. Learn about how people are changing the way we eat, how we can get healthy food into all our neighborhoods, and how to create a food system that is sustainable and creates good jobs.
There’ll be over 175 workshops, cooking demos, and a giant expo. Families can spend the day learning about food together in the Kids and Families Area and teens can enjoy a Youth Summit created by and for teens. Many of the workshops will focus on urban agriculture, how to improve school food, and building a sustainable and just food system.
Bring yourself, your family, and your friends. Purchase lunch online or on-site. Over 5000 people are expected to attend, and there will be something for everyone. Learn from your friends and neighbors, as we gather together to change the food system for a healthy people and planet.
Register today and order your delicious, sustainable lunch for the conference day right now.
