SUMMER SHARES AVAILABLE!
JUNE 5TH 2014 TO
NOVEMBER 6TH 2014
Do you want to eat FRESH, LOCALLY GROWN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES all Summer and Fall?
“Community Supported Agriculture” (CSA) programs are groups of people in urban communities who purchase a share of the harvest directly from a local farmer, for an entire growing season.
CSAs are win-win partnerships:
CSAs support urban people through access to healthy food with no middle man, which makes organic produce affordable. CSA members build new relationships with their community, share recipes, cooking and storage tips, and visit the farm.
CSAs support local, small farmers with a living wage and job security, by giving them a group of committed customers and money upfront, before the season begins.
CSAs support the earth by lowering the amount of gas used in food transport, increasing the amount of land and money going to small family farms instead of large corporate farms, and keeping people and communities healthy.
What makes the Project Harmony / Kitchen Table CSA different?
* We have a sliding scale share price, and we accept EBT (Food Stamps).
* We have two locations, for the convenience of East and West Harlem residents.
* We distribute weekly food shares in beautiful community gardens, great spaces to meet neighbors and let children play.
* We buy from Gonzalez Farms in Pine Island, NY, a non-certified organic farm. This means that they are organic in practice but don’t have certification – an expensive process that makes food with the organic label unaffordable for many – so they can keep their prices low for us.
