The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House CSA is partnering with Paisley Farm for the 2012 Summer Season! Paisley Farm is a 25-acre farm in Tivoli, NY and will be offering Vegetable, Fruit, Egg, Cheese, Wild Forager, and Pasture Raised Pork shares to the community.
Through your participation, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House will be able to provide Vegetable Shares at a very discounted price to our very low-income clients. We will also offer nutrition/cooking workshops to teach members how to cook, store and preserve the delicious vegetables in their CSA shares during distribution hours. Distribution will be on Thursdays from 4-6:30PM at our Center @ Lenox Hill Neighborhood House at 343 East 70th Street (on the Corner of 70th St. and 1st Ave).
If you are interested in joining our CSA and/or are looking for more information, please contact Miles Crettien, Coordinator of Healthy Foods and Wellness, at (212) 744-5022, ext.1213 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also visit Paisley Farm’s website http://upstatefarmsny.com/paisleyfarm and sign up for the Lenox Hill CSA online.
“The Carnegie Hill CSA project started in 1997 as a direct partnership between a community that wanted local, organic produce and a family farm looking to use sustainable land management to build a sustainable business. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a direct relationship between consumers and producers based on a mutual sharing of risks and benefits.
When our group started in 1997, it was far from clear if this model would ultimately succeed. As the years have passed, the group has grown considerably because of greater public awareness of food safety and quality issues. Understanding the source of food, its true cost and the sustainability of the production and delivery models have become increasingly important. And demand has grown enough to support additional sites in the neighborhood.
Today Stoneledge Farm delivers produce to several hundred member families in Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester and Greene counties. The Carnegie Hill/Yorkville CSA groups have also developed relationships with local producers of meat, poultry, cheese, bread, flowers and more.”
