If you are keeping count this is the fourth installment in our “Why Should I Join?” series. If you want to read the earlier posts here is the intro, part 1 and part 2!
If you are like me, and you ride the train or bus to work, you may feel like very little of your life gets spent in your neighborhood, not inside your home. For me, one of the most fulfilling parts of a being a CSA member has been the fact that I get to meet and work with people in my neighborhood who almost always have at least one thing in common with me.
There are so many things to do in Brooklyn, it is often hard deciding which one is the right thing for you. Becoming a member of the Central Brooklyn CSA is a great way to meet and connect with neighbors, support local business, make a positive impact on the planet, save money and get incredible food. It may seem too good to be true, but it is the real deal!
Every adult member is expected to put in at least four (4) hours of volunteering over the course of 22 weeks, but you can put in as much as you desire. So if you find that you enjoy compiling and testing recipes with a new friend from Crown Heights, or working on our blog with a neighbor in Clinton Hill, or participating in nutrition workshop in Stuyvesant Heights, or just hanging out and cracking jokes with other members at Hebron SDA Church on distribution days, becoming a member is all it takes!
