2022 CALENDAR

2022 Season – 31 WEEKS from Spring thru Fall

Return to The Woods!!

YOU HEARD?? We back at The Woods!! Back at our Southside home but even better than just that we will be keeping up our Northside distribution as well with a satellite location at Dolly’s Swing and Dive

2022 we are experimenting with 2 locations. We will return to our roots in the backyard of the Woods with a satellite distribution site across the street from where we have been the past 2 years because of COVID closures. Info linked below!

2022 Distribution Locations: Members will choose one pickup location for entire season:

DOLLYS SWING & DIVE: 5-8pm at 101 Kent Ave/58 N8th

THE WOODS: 630-9pm in the backyard of 48 S4th

Get LOCA LOCAL on MONDAYS w/ SOUTHSIDE CSA. Every Monday evening from May thru November. Choose from a pick-up in either the SOUTHSIDE or NORTHSIDE of WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN. After 2 years of distributing at BIBA, Southside CSA returns to the backyard at The Woods. We will also be hosting a satellite distribution up in the Northside, across the street from BIBA in our new satellite at Dollys Swing & Dive.

THE WOODS – 48 S4th – Mondays from 630-9pm: Not only are we back in their most amazing backyard space we have extended the pickup time a smidge to 9pm.

DOLLYS SWING & DIVE – Mondays from 5-8pm: For 2 years we took refuge from COVID closures up at BIBA. Something new is happening in the space, but we will be distributing across the street from the garage & N8th Street Shed of Dolly’s Swing N’ Dive at 101 Kent Avenue. This is our first experiment in dual locations.

A few things you might want to know:

Saving you $: The earlier you sign-up and pay, the lower your Admin fee! We have a special Farmer’s Hero deal happening with an Admin fee of only $10 if you pay by April 3rd. This can be further reduced by $5 if you pay CASH or Zelle. You will need to sign up by Sat. April 2nd in order to take advantage of this deal! There are 3 other options of paying before the season starts – the closer you get to the beginning of May, the more it costs, so sign up quickly! ADMIN FEE + PAYMENT PLAN INFO LINKED HERE

Also, the earlier you sign up for Veg & Berry, the more you get for your money. Our Berry farmer does not pro-rate his shares, so if you wait to sign up until after the season has started, you don’t get as much for your $. He is our asparagus supplier, so he also provides the first weeks of Veggie – no pro rating for those weeks either. Just something to keep in mind. Don’t wait to sign up & lose out!

Sign-up Cut Off: In the past we have ordered extra shares and allowed people to continue to sign up late into the season. This meant in order to have enough $ to pay for the shares we needed to sell the extras each week, which was both a pain AND if they didn’t all sell, Ryan (our main organizer) ended up footing the bill. In order to prevent this we will only take orders through the end of May. Sign-up now so you don’t miss out!

Donations: you can help us donate shares to the Southside Mission and Community Fridges. There’s a place on the Sign-up form for this. We are also looking for volunteers to be in charge of fundraising. Let us know if you are interested.

Location: We are returning to our Southside home base of THE WOODS! We are planning a small satellite pick-up across the Street from BIBA at Dolly’s Swing & Dive. We need at least 15 people to sign up for this option to make it possible.

COVID: The Woods follows all govt mandates. Currently (April 5) there are no COVID rules for bars. We are recommending that people continue to wear masks during their pick-up. The Dolly’s pick up will be masks REQUIRED and will take place inside a restaurant shed on n8th & Kent and adjacent garage frontage at 58 N8th.

Delivery: We are not planning to have delivery this year. The last few COVID heavy years we felt it was an important service to provide, however, it is a huge drain on our resources. Now that COVID is a bit less prevalent, most people are vaxxed and boosted, and many people are no longer working from home, it just doesn’t make sense for us to keep it up. We are looking into whether or not a 3rd party service might be interested in helping out, but cannot guarantee that will be an option, and it will probably be more expensive. If you are interested in providing and running this service yourself, please contact us, and we would be happy to support your endeavor.

Volunteer Shifts: You will need to sign up for 2 shifts when you fill out your order. You can always change them later if you need to. There will be shifts at Dolly’s as well as The Woods. If you are interested in an admin/organizational shift, please sign-up anyway and once we confirm you, you will be able to remove one or both of your distro/driving shifts. 

Right now we really need someone to make posters for the season! Let us know if you can do it and we will send you images, info, to get you started.

2020 Update – ‘Rona Season…

Sorry for the delay. COVID19 has delayed our launch as we reconfigure some things to match the changes we are experiencing. THE ONE THING NOT CHANGED is our farmers crop. They are planting and the season is proceeding. THE SHOW WILL GO ON!!

new plants

Right now we are updating all the info, determining our quarantine distribution plans, developing delivery options, and figuring out how to do sign-ups completely virtually. I started this CSA 11 years ago with a co-hort of co-organizers. For the past 5 years I have run it solo. I def need to go back to the old model and am recruiting help. It is a bit crazy to download the info from my brain into a seamless way for people to plug in and help. To that end, I have created a google form so that we can get the process started.

Here is a the form: HELP ORGANIZE FORM

AND here is a look at MIMOMEX FARM from March 12th

2020 COMING SOON

ok Winter break is over. Time to think about Spring & that means time to organize…
It is time to launch Southside CSA.
Technically way past time because our farmers like that mid-Winter cashflow. To that end, we will be speed launching this organizing effort. If you want to help organize the Southside CSA, please let me know. Looking for help with accounting, online sales, the blog, social media, weekly email, volunteer scheduling/reminder, etc.
I definitely need help answering email, setting up the email list and weekly emails. And designing the online ordering system. In the past many people have offered their services and it is definitely time for me to recruit more people to help make Southside CSA sustainable.
Anyways, I am back , working on setting up this season. Email for more info
