Please Note: The Brooklyn Bridge CSA accepts subsidies to help provide access to vegetable shares to low-income families. CSA stands for community supported agriculture and we believe that everyone in the community should have access to quality organic vegetables. Your subsidy will go towards a vegetable share for a low-income family in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.

We will send you an email confirmation when we receive your payment.
As always, please contact us with any questions.

Thank you!!
