Thank you for your interest in the Clinton Hill CSA. Our Apple and Beet plans are full. If you are interested in our Carrot plan, for members who are SNAP/EBT eligible, please email treasurer@clintonhillcsa.org

We'll open the waitlist for our Summer 2020 season after Labor Day.


THE SEASON

The season will run 22 weeks, beginning Thursday, June 6, and ending Thursday, October 31. During the season, you’ll pick up your share every Thursday evening between 5 - 7:30pm at PS 56 in Clinton Hill (170 Gates Ave-with CSA entrance on Downing Street). Members with half shares will follow a bi-weekly pickup schedule. Note that the week of July 4, pickup will be on Tuesday, July 2, NOT Thursday, July 4. This activity is not sponsored or endorsed by the NYC Department of Education or the City of New York.

STAY TUNED! THE 2019 SEASON BEGINS SOON.

YOUR COMMITMENT

Work Shifts

All Member Households are required to work four hours per season or two hours if you are a member with a half share. This can be done by helping out during pick-up hours on site or helping with occasional other projects.

Payment

In order to make our farm-share accessible to all households in our community, Clinton Hill CSA has a mixed-income membership. We offer 3 plans for membership based on household income:
