ABOUT OUR SHARES
CSA members may choose between a FULL (every week) or HALF (every other week) share. Vegetables and fruit will run from June 7,  2016 until November 1, 2016. Brooklyn Beet CSA members can place orders and pay for meat, eggs, and dairy products directly from Lewis Waite Farms and pick up bi-weekly (on A weeks) throughout the CSA season during the regular Tuesday 6-8 pm CSA distributions.

DONATIONS
Donations are used to purchase a fruit and vegetable share for the YWCA residents and staff who host the CSA every week. Additionally, we are fundraising to start a program that will make CSA shares more affordable for members who use SNAP benefits, while supporting our farmers. Thank you in advance for donating what you can.
