Sign ups for 2017 are now closed. Check back later for information on the 2018 season. Information on the 2017 season is below:
To become a member of the Central Park West CSA or to renew your membership, purchase a Membership (Full Share or Half Share). This determines the quantity of vegetables you will pick up each week.
A Full Share typically feeds 3-4 people. A Half Share can feed 1-2 people. The full season lasts 22 weeks (June 6-October 30). The fall season lasts 9 weeks (September 5-October 30)
Fall 2017 prices:
- Full Share: $248
- Half Share: $130
When and where will I pick up my produce?
Members pick up their share(s) in front of Book Culture (Columbus Avenues between W 81st and 82nd Sts) on Tuesdays between 4:30-7pm, with the exception of Wednesday, July 5, and Monday, October 30. Please note that if you arrive between 6:45-7:00pm, your produce might already be bagged. This is to ensure a speedy clean up. Produce not picked up by 7 PM is donated to West Side Campaign Against Hunger.
What happens to my produce if I don’t pick it up by 7 PM?
If a member is unable to pick up (or have someone else pick up) their share for the week, it will be donated to a local organization in the community called West Side Campaign Against Hunger.
What are the requirements for joining the CSA?
In addition to purchasing a Full Share or Half Share of vegetables, each member is required to volunteer to help with distribution / cleanup. Our CSA is run by the members. We have no paid staff. Our CSA cannot function without all of us who belong to the CSA. Once you sign up, we will send you information about how to select shifts, roles and dates that work for you.
