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 at an incredible price!
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!
Do Something in Brooklyn
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!
This is a friendly reminder that the sign-up deadline for the Central Brooklyn CSA is Friday, 30 April 2010!
For all of the wonderful people we have met who have yet to submit their membership agreements and deposits, this is a friendly reminder that the “official” sign-up deadline for the Central Brooklyn CSA is Friday, 30 April 2010!
A breakdown of what it will cost you to join the CSA is available here. If you are interested in joining and need a few more days to round up your deposit, are wondering about the volunteer requirement, or have any other questions, you may e-mail us at CentralBrooklynCSA@gmail.com, or contact Maia by phone!
You can mail in your deposits and membership agreements to this address. (The minimum deposit is 10% unless you are paying with food stamps, in which case, it is $0!)
We have not finalized the deadline for fruit and egg shares, but you cannot sign-up for either of those unless you have signed up for a vegetable share!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
