Sign Up for the Central Brooklyn CSA!


The Central Brooklyn CSA connects the Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy Communities with the beautiful Windflower Farm in Upstate New York. Our CSA differs from others, in that we operate a tiered pricing structure. The tiered system allows for our higher income members to pay at a slightly higher rate, which then subsidizes shares for our lower income members. We also accept EBT payments for members currently utilizing the SNAP Program.  This CSA enables community members of all income levels to receive delicious, organic, and locally sourced produce at incredibly affordable rates from June-October each year.

Feel free to share the brochure and the flyer!

5/17 deadline: CB8 Community Feedback on Citibike Locations

Brooklyn Community Board No. 8 needs specific comments on the CitiBike locations. They are due by May 17th. Which locations work? Which do not? Where would you prefer to see them (exact locations)? For those that don’t work, where would you place them instead? Please note that no additional docks are going to be added. The number will stay at 17. DOT will make the final determination if they see based on your comments that a particular site will not work. However, if you do not provide an alternative site, they will choose one on their own. It is not enough to say “more sidewalk docks and less streetscape.” You must provide locations. The Brooklyn-CB-8-Draft-citibike-Map is enclosed.
