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 CSA at Ansche Chesed have the option of purchasing vegetable, fruit, egg and fresh flower shares from The 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.
This year marks a milestone: 10 years of the CSA at Ansche Chesed. We were Garden of Eve’s first CSA and the very first Hazon-sponsored CSA in the country!
Registration is now open for 2014!
Season runs from June 11 - November 19

Share costs for 2014: note these do not include a 7.5% transportation fee or the $15 administrative fee.

Veggie Tip: The Off-Season
If any of you were clever enough to blanch and freeze vegetables during the harvest, or to participate in one of our wonderful canning classes, you’ll be very pleased to have a pantry or freezer stuffed with goodies! Meanwhile, the rest of us are suffering through the bleak options out and around this time of year. Luckily, spring is coming!
Sign up and stay tuned.

"Now, happily situated in NYC, and influenced once again by our friends raving about the various NYC CSAs, we decided to set aside our bad memories and give it another go, but only after checking and double-checking what vegetables had been delivered in previous years through the same CSA. We've been happily surprised, though I'm now better prepared with cookbooks, a host of vegetarian blogs, and a CSA that actually provides what we consider more standard fare with a little bit of adventure thrown in..."
