Name: Marci Lieber
What is your role in the Prospect Park CSA? My primary role in the CSA is managing the firstname.lastname@example.org inbox. I also spent some time during our first season doing outreach for Plan C members.
Why did you decide to become involved with the CSA? I had been on the wait list for the Prospect Heights CSA for a couple years so as soon as I heard that someone was interested in forming a second CSA for the neighborhood I jumped right in and volunteered to help get it started. I had wanted to be a part of a CSA for obvious reasons… it’s hard to get great, fresh produce around here. The farmer’s markets are pretty pricey and this is a great way to eat delicious food at a lower cost. It’s also great knowing that you’re supporting a nearby farm alongside a community of other people.
What do you do when you’re not volunteering with Prospect Park CSA? I’m a social worker who works part-time doing home studies for prospective adoptive families for a non-profit adoption agency. The rest of my time is spent caring for my son Theo and my daughter Ruby.
What’s your favorite place in our neighborhood? My favorite place in the neighborhood is probably my home! (and I do really like The Winey Neighbor).
What’s your favorite dish to make with CSA produce? My favorite dish… hmmm, I absolutely love making a salad nearly every Tuesday evening during CSA season with the delicious lettuce, radishes and tomatoes. In the fall, I love to make my famous potato leek soup.
