Some news on the Community Supported Agriculture front today: Midtown Lunch brings word that the Mohawk Valley’s Free Bird Farm will be distributing organic produce to members on Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Vanderbilt YMCA from June through October of this year. In Brooklyn, the Bay Ridge Co-Op announces, via its newsletter, that you can sign up for its budding CSA at a meeting tomorrow (the Rogowski Farm of Pine Crest will provide fresh vegetables and eggs). Green Fork reports that Greenpoint’s Eagle Street Rooftop Farm has launched the nation’s first rooftop-based CSA. And finally, Edible Queens has a helpful rundown of CSAs in the big borough.
