2013 Registration Closed

Thank you to everyone who has signed up for 2013 shares. It’s fantastic to see so much support in our neighborhood for small farmers! We are now closing registration for the 2013 season.

Based on our experience from past seasons, some shares will likely open up between now and June. In this case we will offer shares to our waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like to be added to our waitlist for shares, please email us: info@prospectparkcsa.org

Meet Your CSA Core Group: Caroline

Name: Caroline Nagy

What is your role in the Prospect Park CSA? I work on our website and social media (so I am actually interviewing myself right now!). In the past I’ve also worked on community outreach, and most importantly I am a happy consumer of our CSA’s delicious food!

Why did you decide to become involved with the CSA? I really love cooking and eating delicious food, and thought that joining a CSA would be a fantastic way to do this while also supporting a family farm and getting to know my neighbors. Plus, getting new vegetables that I wouldn’t usually buy through the CSA has really expanded my repertoire as a cook. Kohlrabi doesn’t even intimidate me anymore! Also, my partner Anthony helped start Prospect Park CSA as its founding treasurer, so the CSA kind of came to me.

What do you do when you’re not volunteering with Prospect Park CSA? I work for the Center for NYC Neighborhoods, a foreclosure-prevention and Sandy recovery nonprofit where I do research, public education, and advocacy regarding housing issues. In my free time I love biking, food, hiking, going to concerts in parks, local politics, animals in general, and my two cats in particular.

What’s your favorite place in our neighborhood? The Brooklyn Botanic Garden! Followed by Chavelas, Washington Commons, and the Brooklyn Yoga Collective.

What’s your favorite dish to make with CSA produce? Summer: caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes. Fall: butternut squash and black bean enchiladas. Winter: Leek and potato soup.

Meet Your CSA Core Group: Candace

Name: Candace Thompson

What is your role in the Prospect Park CSA? Afternoon delivery Site Coordinator and Weekly-reminder-email-sender

Why did you decide to become involved with the CSA? I used to be a Site Coordinator and Treasurer for the East Williamsburg CSA, but two years back Troy and Susan at Fountain mentioned that they were going to be hosting a new location and that the Core Group was in need of afternoon distro help. I offered to switch over and come help them out, as my schedule is pretty flexible and I always need an excuse for a good afternoon bike ride. So here I am! 

What do you do when you’re not volunteering with Prospect Park CSA? I’m a performer and video maker and I freelance in various aspects of video production.  

What’s your favorite place in our neighborhood? Well, I’m not really an expert as I still live in Bushwick, but I’ve def got my sights set on making P Heights home one of these days! You can often see me at Fountain’s art openings, the Jamaican juice bar on Washington, or at Chavelas tearing it up on some tacos. 

What’s your favorite dish to make with CSA produce? Favorite dish with CSA bounty? We don’t have AC in our loft, so we grill out almost every night in summer on our porch. We make some pretty mean grilled veggie tacos, grilled pizzas and veggie kebabs. I’m looking forward to this season. Scurvy has just about set in
