I am thrilled to bring my love of flower farming to Brooklyn. You can purchase Youth Farm Flowers through our Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA). As a CSA member, your purchase of a share (while not tax deductible) supports educational programming at the Youth Farm for students at the High School for Public Service.
CSA members receive gorgeous cut-flower bouquets each week, featuring unique seasonal perennials and annuals. Flowers are harvested and bunched the day of distribution, and last from 5-14 days. For a list of sample shares scroll down.
The 2013 Cut Flower CSA will run for 17 weeks, June 26th through October 16th. Shares are distributed at two locations:
Wednesdays at the Youth Farm, 600 Kingston Avenue, 2:30-6:30pm
Mondays at Shambhala Yoga and Dance in Prospect Heights, 5-8pm
