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.
