Greetings!    

 

-For Full, A WEEK, Fruit, Milk Not Jails Full/Half Shares & Egg Shares:  Distribution will be this Wed, from 5pm-8pm at Congregation Mt Sinai.

GREAT OPPORTUNITY! Help underprivilged students by DONATING SCHOOL SUPPLIES during CSA pick up at THIS WEDNESDAY ONLY from 5pm-8pm.  Our sister CSA, Crown Heights Farm Share, has teamed up with CCM (Community Counseling and Mediation) in order to give back to the Crown Heights community. And now we’re teaming up with them, too.  CCM hopes to provide supplies for the 200 neediest children who they serve, who encompass a wide range of ages, from kindergarten all the way up to high school. CCM would also accept store gift cards, so that the children can pick out their own supplies.  Donation Ideas: Pencils, Pens, Crayons, Backpacks, Binders, Notebooks, Flash Drives

Volunteer Days At Sang Lee Farm!  Come one, come all! Sang Lee is inviting and asking you all to help them in our biggest push for the tomato harvest. You can come any day (mon-fri) from 3-6pm to help pick tomatoes – you will in turn recieve a nice goody bag to take home and as many tomatoes as you can eat in the field! Bring a buddy and harvest the bounty together! Meet under the big tree by the barn to coordinate and get set up. Hope to see you out there this month! (Note:  This is from Sang Lee Farm – the CSA is not organizing a trip, but you are welcome to go to the farm on your own to volunteer as requested – and let us know if you do!)

-Please remember to bring your own bags and be mindful to take what is alotted for each share.

-If you haven’t joined us on Facebook yet – please do!  This is where you can share your favorite recipes or look for someone to swap weeks with.
 
Have a great week!
