Group Looking to Start New CSA in Hunters Point
LONG ISLAND CITY — A new CSA could be coming to Hunters Point, which would make it the first farm share program in the immediate neighborhood, where grocery store options are limited.
Local blog LIC Spot wrote this week about fliers posted around the area advertising the potential CSA. In an e-mail, organizer Susan Fedynak wrote that the plan is still in "the very beginning stage" of gaging community interest, but that "it looks like the demand is high enough for us to move forward."
CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture," and consist of members who purchase shares of fruits and vegetables, usually from a farm within the Tri-State region, with batches of the fresh foods delivered one or twice a week to the neighborhood for pick-up.
