About the CSA
The Ditmas Park CSA has been partnering with Amantai Farm and the Flatbush Tompkins Congregational Church to bring fresh veggies to folks in the neighborhood for over ten years. We are run by a small core group of volunteers and supported by the work of all our members. We think that the Ditmas Park CSA has the freshest produce, generous shares, and the best variety that you can find! We hope that you think so, too!
The Ditmas Park CSA offers full and partial produce shares and will run for 20 weeks from June 12 - October 23. Prices and share information can be found on the main page and also on the sign-up form.
Where do I go?
We will be set up outside Flatbush-Tompkins Congregational Church on Dorchester Road between E. 19th and E. 18th. Distribution is on Tuesdays from 4:45-8pm. We ask that all members be considerate of the church property. In particular they have asked us not to cut across the lawn, but to stay on the paved walkways.
What do I do when I get there?
Find one of the volunteers and tell them your name (or the primary shareholder's name). Take one box of pre-weighed produce. Refer to the board to find out what to take of the “self-serve” produce. Be sure to pick up any “add-ons” that you paid for (eggs or fruit). Head home and enjoy the tastes of summer.
What should I bring?
Make sure to bring a box or bags with you to pick-up to carry home all of your goodies.
Each share must sign up for 2, 1.5 hour workshifts during the season. This responsibility can be spread across members of the share. Here is the 2018 volunteer sign-up form.
CSA Core Group
The CSA is evolving! A core group of volunteers is a necessary element of the CSA and has been meeting to discuss all things CSA-related, from organizing the pickup location and volunteers to managing the finances and planning CSA-related get-togethers. The core group is responsible for handling communication with members and distributing a weekly email to all subscribers. We need and encourage any CSA member to join this group to become more involved in our community CSA. Email us if you're interested: firstname.lastname@example.org.
