No More 'Cobble Hill Envy': CSA Coming to Heights

Brooklyn Heights residents no longer need suffer from Cobble Hill envy, says Chowhounder correspondent Peter. Now Heights residents will be able to purchase a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share and get fresh, crisp organic produce every week.

It works like this: In the spring, CSA members buy a "share" of the farm's produce which helps cover the anticipated costs of the farm operation and pay the farmer a living wage. In return, members receive their cut of the farm's bounty throughout the growing season, as well as quite a bit of satisfaction from helping to keep a family-run organic farm in the black.

Pick up will take place Wednesdays at the Unitarian Church on Monroe Place (thank goodness for those Unitarians!). See here for details.
