I may have staged the photo in my living room with store-bought veggies, but the announcement is real: starting at the end of May, organic local produce will be available in Crown Heights! In cooperation with Just Food, a local farmer will be selling shares in his or her crop this spring, and shareholders will be able to pick up a box of freshly harvested food every Tuesday night near the 2-3-4-5 Franklin Avenue stop on Eastern Parkway from May through November. Shares cost a pretty penny up front--tentative prices are $550 for a full share aimed at 3-5 people, and $375 for a partial share--but are worth it in the long run, clocking in at somewhere between $20-25 a week for high quality organic grub. Partner up with some friends to keep costs down, and both your taste buds and your conscience will thank you.
For more information, or to reserve a share, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 347.715.5777.
