- Join us the night of Sunday, May 19th from 8:30 to 10:30pm for a Game of Thrones final episode viewing party! Stick around after Open Gym to experience on of the biggest events in TV history with your fellow fitness fiends. The show starts at 9pm.
The Return of the Vegetable CSA: Discount available!
A few years ago, we offered a vegetable CSA in partnership with Brooklyn Boulders and Common Hands Farm in Hudson, NY. They were our most popular vegetable CSA vendor, so we were sad when they took a few summers off to move farms and re-organize. Happily, the program is back and stronger than ever!
The CSA offers two options: every week or every-other-week deliveries of a wide range of seasonal vegetables. Pickup will be Wednesdays, 4-8, at Brooklyn Boulders.
The full share (every week) is available at a special price for CFSBK members who sign up by Wednesday, May 22nd: $655.
The half share (every other week) is $365 if you sign up by May 22nd.
If you are interested but unable to commit to the whole summer, consider splitting a share with someone (post on the blog to find a buddy!) Folks who pay for a half share (every other week) do get to swap some weeks for others to accommodate for vacations, etc.
If you want help finding a buddy, have questions that the farm’s website doesn’t answer, or want to talk to someone about strategies and recipes for seasonal produce, contact CFSBK’s CSA coordinator, Michele Knaub, at mignyc [at] gmail [dot] com.
