PS 87 CSA, Community Supported Agriculture

We are excited that we will be offering our Fall Share at P.S. 87 again, our fifth season offering a farm share for the fall school semester!

We are now accepting sign-ups for our Vegetable, Egg and Fruit shares, to begin on Wednesday September 11th. Dates: 14 weeks, Sept 11- Dec. 18th (skip Nov. 27th for Thanksgiving) Pick up on Thursday, Oct 10th because of Yom Kippur. 
Price:  Vegetable share $245, Fruit add-on $70, Eggs add-on $87.50
Hours:   Pick up Wednesdays, 2:45 – 3:30pm, at P.S. 87

Veggie share:  5 items per week of our certified organic vegetables, usually including a mix of a salad green, a root vegetable, a cooking green, and other seasonal veggies or herbs.

Fruit option:  1 fruit item a week from Mead Orchard.  Mead Orchard is a wonderful third-generation orchard just down the road from us.  The fruit is Eco-Apple Certified, making it one of the few orchards in the northeast that adheres to this impressive standard.  

Eggs option:  Pasture-raised eggs every week (or you may choose a dozen or a half dozen).  The eggs are from the hens we raise here at Hearty Roots Farm.  They live outdoors on pasture, foraging in the grass, which gives their eggs amazing, nutrient-rich orange yolks.

The Wellness Committee needs volunteers to help unload the Hearty Roots truck and hand out the shares every Wednesday from 2:30-3:30! It’s fun to do with your kids!!  Email pa-wellness@ps87.info to sign up!
