2011 Sign Up is Here!

Welcome back to the Red Hook CSA. We’re excited for the new season to begin.

Last year’s members can begin signing up on Fri., March 11. You will have first priority until March 31. If you do not get your contract and payment in by that date, your application will be processed during new member sign-up.

New member applications will not be accepted until April 1.

(Prices and contract after the jump.)

There are approximately 50 shares available, and Red Hook residents and people living in 11231 zip code have first priority at becoming new members.  The Red Hook CSA is committed to being economically and racially diverse and to supporting our local community.

To join, print out the contract, decide whether you want a full or small share, and bring payment to the Added Value office at 360 Van Brunt Street. We accept: Cash, credit, debit and EBT cards.

Don’t forget: All members are required to do 10 volunteer hours through the season. That can be on the farm, planning events, working on the blog, and more.
