Community-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.
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!
UPDATES FOR THE 2023 SEASON
We are very sad to announce that after 19 wonderful years, Garden of Eve has chosen to end their Wednesday CSA at Ansche Chesed. The core team encourages you to find another local CSA, and hopefully we shall meet again there!
