We are not able to hold winter CSA distributions at our regular season location because of the change in delivery day. The DUMBO/Vinegar Hill CSA has agreed to combine deliveries with us at the following location:
St. Ann’s Warehouse (45 Water St) in Dumbo from 5:00-8:00 pm on the dates above.
Deadline to register: Friday, Nov 10 (We have a very limited number of shares available, so enrollment is on a first-come, first served basis.)
We will be in touch with you about volunteering after you register.
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.
