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 6, 2017 until October 30, 2017. Full vegetable shares are 22-weeks, and full fruit shares are 20 weeks, skipping 7/3 and 10/30. 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 B 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.
