The Kew Gardens Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group is  a local, grassroots organization in Queens, NY whose members pay in advance–usually in the Spring–for weekly and biweekly pickups of vegetables, fruit, eggs, flowers, bread, cheese, meat and beer.

Our partner is Garden of Eve Organic Farm in Riverhead, NY. The farmers are Chris & Eve Kaplan-Walbrecht.

Members pick up at the Kew Gardens Cinemas Park on Austin St. and Lefferts Blvd. on Sunday mornings, 9:30 to 11:30am. The season goes from June to just before Thanksgiving–24 weekly distributions.

This site should provide everything you need to know about our CSA. The farm’s website provides specifics about shares, prices, etc.

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for communities to buy high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. A farmer offers farm shares to the public. Shares usually include 7-10 types of vegetables, enough for a family of 2-3 people, with add-on options for other items like fruits and eggs. Interested members purchase a seasonal subscription in advance allowing the farmer to pay for seed, equipment, etc. up front. Hence the “community-supported” part of CSA. 

Throughout the season, members receive a box of seasonal produce straight from the farm. By developing a relationship with the farmer who grows our food, we can learn more about our food. Often members are exposed to new vegetables and find new ways of cooking through the community.

Please check out justfood.org for more information about the history of CSAs in NYC.
