Summer Share Registration Open!

Hello everyone,

We may be caught between polar vortexes and impending snow storms, but
it's time to think about SPRING! The Grand Street CSA is officially
open for registration and fresh veggies, delicious fruits, tasty
pastas and more are only a few months away.

We will once again be getting our vegetables, fruit and eggs from
Norwich Meadows Farm and our pasta from Sfoglini Pasta. The share
prices are as follows:

Vegetables: $340 for 22 weeks per share
Fruit: $240 for full share (20 weeks) and $120 for half share (10 weeks)
Eggs: $115.50 for full share (1 dozen eggs every week for 22 weeks)
and $57.75 for half share (1/2 dozen eggs every week for 22 weeks)
Pasta: $110 for 22 weeks

There is also an administrative fee of $15, and a work commitment of
at least two volunteer shifts during the season.Once you sign up, you
will receive a confirmation email with the link to sign up for your
shifts and information on how to pay for your share. You are not
confirmed until you have signed up for your shifts and have sent in
your payment!

We will have a Meet the Farmer night on February 25th at 7pm in the
Seward Park Community Room at 264 East Broadway (also known as
Building 1 at the Seward Park Co-ops).You will get a chance to hear
from our farmer, Zaid Kurdieh of Norwich Meadows Farm, about our
vegetable, fruit and egg shares and other specialty items the farm
offers and Scott Ketchum from Sfoglini Pasta will be on hand to talk
about and show off their artisanal pastas. We will also have a
representative from Milk Not Jails to talk about their dairy
offerings, and Village Fishmonger will be there to discuss the
possibility of introducing a fish share this summer. Our CSA Core will
be on hand to answer any questions you may have on our 2014 season.

If you already know you want to join, you can register today online:

member will be in touch.
