Bay Ridge Community Supported Agriculture Has Rocked Too

November 23rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

There has been much hubbub surrounding Marty Golden’s Greenmarket in the Walgreens parking lot in Bay Ridge, and much debate about whether it will live on past December. Thirty blocks away, produce-hungry residents of the Bay Ridge Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) have taken matters into their own hands. Every Saturday from June through November Farmer Benjamin of Hearty Roots Farms has delivered vegetables from Tivoli, NY to the Presbyterian Church (the one whose huge stained glass window was destroyed in the tornado last year) on 4th Ave and Senator. About 100 Bay Ridge denizens pick up their week’s share of vegetables each Saturday. Now in the final days of their first season, re-registration is high for the second season of weekly farm fresh produce, guaranteed.
