Ansche Chesed CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, CSA, Garden of Eve Farm

AnscheChesedCSA_logoCommunity-Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial partnership in which urban consumers receive fresh, organic vegetables while sustaining the livelihoods and stewardship of regional farmers. In a CSA, the farmer pre-sells shares; the money goes to the cost of growing, distributing, and paying the farmer a living wage.

Members of the Ansche Chesed CSA have the option of purchasing vegetable, fruit, egg and fresh flower shares from Garden of Eve — a certified organic farm on the east end of Long Island.  To further education and awareness of food issues, we also organize events and workshops for members throughout the season.

Garden of Eve has been partnering with the Ansche Chesed Synagogue for over 10 years to distribute local produce and build community in the Upper West Side. We were Garden of Eve’s first CSA and the very first Hazon-sponsored CSA in the country!

Helpful Tips:
  • Swap Box: If there is a vegetable or fruit you just don’t want, drop it in the swap box and take something you would rather have. Do not take an extra share of something from the tables!
  • Pick up hours are 5:30-7:30 PM at Ansche Chesed. Please do not come early unless you are a volunteer. We need the time to set up signs and supplies. Thank you for your understanding.
  • Don’t forget to bring BAGS! We at Ansche Chesed CSA love our planet, and know you do too.
  • Need to swap your A or B pickup? See our share swap forum and post your request.

    Latest News from the Farm

FARM NEWS:

We are getting ready for the fall, fighting weeds and mowing like crazy, picking blackberries, turning under lettuce that has bolted in the heat wave.
It’s so difficult to grow greens in this heat, most greens you see in the market would be from specialized farms in cooler areas, or even South America where it’s winter now.
In the heat wave they overheat, so this week we are shifting to “summer crops” – tomatoes, potatoes, peppers etc! They LOVE the heat and grow so well at this time of year. At the farm we had our melon tasting, with 10 different types of melons that we are growing! Enjoy.
Thanks for supporting our farm!
Chris, Eve, and the Farm Crew
