What does it cost?

Here’s what it costs for a vegetable share (which includes lots of fresh, organic veggies from Sang Lee Farms on Long Island):

  • Full share: $635 for 23 weeks ($27.61/week)
  • Partial share: $425 for 23 weeks ($18.48/week)

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

  • Fruit share: $195 for 18 weeks ($10.83/week)
  • Cheese share: $195 for 18 weeks ($10.83/week)
We may also have optional fish and dairy shares available to our vegetable share members.

For more information about what a typical share looks like, check out some our delivery lists from last season.

How do I sign up?

We must have all signups and at least a 50% deposit in hand by April 30 so that Fred can plan his plantings for the season. If we don’t have your deposit by the 30th, we’ll put you on a wait list and we cannot guarantee any additional spots.

How does payment work?

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, we request a 50% deposit to reserve your spot.

Check should be made out to to Dumbo/Vinegar Hill CSA. You can mail them or leave them with the doorman at the following address:

Frances Spangler
1 Main Street, #5G
Brooklyn 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. The first pickup date will probably be June 11, depending on the harvest.

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.

Any other questions? Check out our FAQs, or email us—we’re happy to help.
