The summer season will start soon.
Please email us at core [at] dumbocsa.org to let us know if you’re interested in signing up for our summer share beginning in June.
What does it cost?
Final pricing is still to come, but here are approximate costs for a vegetable share (which includes lots of fresh, organic veggies from Sang Lee Farms on Long Island):
- Full share: $650 for 23 weeks ($28.26/week)

We’re also offering two optional add-on shares:

How do I sign up?
- Step 1: Fill out the online registration form (to come)
- Step 2: Mail us your payment (details below)
- Step 3: Count down the days until your first veggies arrive in June!
The deadline for all summer/fall payments is May 15, 2014.
How does payment work?
First, calculate how much you owe based on the shares you’ve signed up for.
If you can pay for your shares in full right up front, please do—it’s a huge help to Fred, and it makes it easier for him to purchase seeds and get his equipment ready for the season.
Otherwise, please send in a 50% deposit to reserve your spot. That means…
- $325 for a full vegetable share
- $220 for a partial vegetable share
- $97.50 for a fruit share
- $97.50 for a cheese share
Please add up the total amount and send us one check to cover all of your shares.
Make your check out to to DUMBO Vinegar Hill CSA and mail it to…
Frances Spangler1 Main Street, #5GBrooklyn NY 11201
If you need to discuss a different payment schedule, just let us know—we want to make the CSA accessible to everyone, and we’re happy to work with you.
How do I get my vegetables?
Pickup is at the Phoenix House on 50 Jay Street on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. beginning in June and ending in November. We haven’t determined the first pickup date yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear.
Are there any other requirements?
Yes—we require every member of the CSA to contribute two volunteer shifts over the course of the season (approximately 4 hours total). We’ll connect with members in the spring with details about signing up.
Volunteering is a very important part of keeping our CSA running smoothly, and it’s a great way to get to know your neighbors and fellow veggie lovers. If you have concerns about your ability to fulfill the volunteer requirement, please get in touch with us, and we’ll see if we can work something out.
