The wait is over! We have now opened up our CSA registration to the general public.
Shares are limited, so sign up to get yours now!
Have you checked your inbox lately? Truth be told, you should be just a little sick of us right about now, what with the Pick-Up schedules, the Volunteer Sign Ups, the Google Group invites, and the Newsletter. We promise this is going to calm down soon, but this past week may have felt a little overwhelming (for us, too!).
Wait…you haven’t heard from us? You haven’t gotten the Newsletter’s Orientation Edition? Haven’t received even one Google Group Invite? You don’t even know when you’re supposed to pick up your vegetables?
First, go check your spam filter. You may find us there, amid the numerous Free Socks For Life messages you’re probably right to ignore. If so, just check whatever box you need to check to un-filter us and all is well.
If you still don’t see any messages from us, chances are that somewhere along the line, we got your email address wrong. If you suspect that is the case, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your correct information ASAP. We don’t want you to miss another email!
There are no more shares available for the 2012 season.
Windflower Farm’s winter share consists of a collection of organically grown storage vegetables and greens, and apples, pears and cider from neighboring farms, all pre-packaged in a 1-bushel box. Winter share boxes will be delivered on four Saturdays during the winter (11/19/2011, 12/17/2011, 1/21/2012, 2/11/2012). West Harlem CSA Winter distributions will take place at Broadway Presbyterian Church, from 12:00 to 1:00.
Mary and Bob Pratt from Elihu Farm are also offering egg shares to Winter shareholders. If you purchase an egg share, it will be delivered along with your Winter vegetable share.
Have a great Winter and enjoy your Winter Share!
Hi Everyone – Please note that we were recently notified by Ted Blomgren, our farmer at Windflower Farm, that because of all the crazy weather this past month he has been forced to push back his harvesting and our start date one week. So our new start date will be TUESDAY JUNE 14th. This means that our 22 week season will be from June 14th to November 8th 2011. See you all at the first distribution.
The start of the new season is just around the corner (June 7th) but we still have a limited amount of shares available for purchase. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a share, now’s the time to do it. After May 27th, we will no longer accept any share purchases and we will inform you if shares are sold out before then.
Sign Ups for the 2011 Season is Closed!

Group Makes Organic Produce Affordable for Uptown Residents
By Leslie Albrecht
UPPER WEST SIDE — Buying organic produce can take a big bite out of your wallet, but one Upper West Side food group is providing farm fresh vegetables on the cheap.
The West Harlem Community Supported Agriculture Group, whose members pay for weekly deliveries of organic vegetables from Windflower Farm in Valley Falls, N.Y., is taking food stamps and subsidizing memberships for low-income families.
By working with the Hunger Action Network of New York State and the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, the West Harlem CSA sets aside 40 percent of its memberships for people who can’t afford the full $495 fee for a weekly produce delivery from June to November. Read the entire story here!
