Our partner CSA in Briarwood will be on hiatus for the 2022 CSA season and will not be conducting our farmshare this summer as previously planned. The Core group will continue to work together.
We thank you for joining us in the process up until this point, and welcome suggestions, now or in the future, on how future incarnations of our group can better serve our community, as we continue to strategize for the 2023 season and beyond.
We are happy to announce that the Kew Gardens CSA received a 2019 Neighborhood Grant from the Citizens Committee for New York City (CCNYC). The grant is for a revolving loan program, which will help us expand our membership and provide access to farm fresh food for our neighbors. Thank you, CCNYC!
The Kew Gardens CSA has several members from Briarwood, and a small group of them is hoping for a site over near the Briarwood library for 2019. All of this takes work and community support. You may have seen us passing out fliers and taking names for a list of interested neighbors. Can you help us recruit in Briarwood?
Update: The Briarwood CSA will be biweekly in year one. Pickups will be by the Briarwood subway/library. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Website: www.briarwoodcsa.org . And, we are on Twitter and Facebook @briarwoodcsa.
We had a great time tabling at the County Fair of the Queens County Farm Museum on Saturday, talking CSA with fair visitors from all over Queens and encouraging them to join a neighborhood CSA group.
We were so happy to see our KG friends and members, as well as friends from Glendale CSA. It really gave us a boost. Special thx to Ron from the Core group–without him this would not have worked. I learned a lot about his love of nature and his activities around Queens wildlife spots.
