Newark’s Freshest: Get ready for the 2013 season!

newarks freshest_gala

Share deliveries for the 2013 CSA Newark will start mid June (probably June 12th – which seems oh-so-far away!), but it is not to early to sign up for the season already (particularly if you want to get the early-sign-up discount) – read on below for details on the 2013 season at CSA Newark and make sure your summer and fall will be filled with affordable, locally grown, fresh, organic veggies:
– the delivery of shares will start mid June (probably June 12th) and will last for 24 weeks
– all produce is grown by John Krueger of Starbrite Farm, a certified organic farm in Andover, NJ
– pickup is every Wednesday, 4pm-7pm in the carriage way of the Button Factory, 85 Hamilton Street, Newark, NJ
– full share is $600 for the season.  $25 discount if paid in full by 3/15/2013
– half shares are possible – for details see the membership form
– full shares are great for families of four or for vegetarian couples
– half shares are great for singles or families that do not eat so much veggies
– we have received compliments on the quality, quantity and variety of the CSA shares provided by John Krueger
– support the CSA pick-up location: we ask for some volunteering time and for a $20 site fee for the season – see the membership form for details
– details on the optional fruit share will be announced later in the season
– find the membership form here:   CSA Newark Member Form 2013

– If you have read this post as well as the membership form but you still have questions, write to: info at CSANewark dot com and we will get back to you.

Looking forward to a great growing season and more green in our life’s and stomachs!

    I’ve just found you! and would like to join. Is it possible to do it for
    575 yet? I could drop off the check at Ironbound at your convenience.
    Please advice.

    • Hello Oscar & Yolanda, the early-signup deadline was 03/15, but you could still sign up for the regular price ($600 for the full share). You could either mail the check and membership form (mailing address is on the membership form), or drop it off with me. If you prefer to drop it off, please send me an e-mail to eve at csanewark dot com and I will send you my mobile number (you could check if I am home with a quick text, or we can make out a time I will be here….) — Glad you found us! Evelyn
