“Hey veggie lovers in Greenpoint! The Greenpoint Reformed Church going to be hosting a CSA this year. Here’s the info if you’re looking to sign up for fresh veggies this spring and summer: Lineage Farm will be teaming up with the Greenpoint Reformed Church for a CSA distribution on Mondays starting June 4. This will be a weekly distribution of vegetables that runs for 22 weeks. All produce is grown with organic and biodynamic methods of farming. The variety of vegetables changes over the season. There will be about 35 different types of vegetables grown and distributed during the season with over 130 varieties of those vegetables. For more information please visit www.lineagefarmcsa.com or email the farmer who’s growing the food at [email protected].
In exchange for using the church as a base for distributing CSA veggies, Lineage Farms will be donating extra produce to the soup kitchen and food pantry. We are incredibly grateful to all the area CSAs that donate food to our hunger program. The list includes the Greenpoint-Williamsburg CSA, the Paisley Farm CSA and the South Side CSA among others. Thanks to their generosity, we’re able to distribute tons of fresh veggies and fruit to hungry people in North Brooklyn.
