For those interested in another super convenient option to get fresh produce in NYC, now you can have seasonal edibles delivered to the workplace! The owners of Great Performances and Katchkie Farm–the Manhattan catering company and not-for-profit upstate agriculture center are launching a workplace CSA program for those who usually work too late to hit their neighborhood pickups, and the sign-up season is starting now.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Katchkie’s explanation is awfully eloquent: “Emerging in the early 1960′s in Europe as a way to bridge the gap between urban veggie lovers and rural farmers, the CSA model is a simple yet powerful idea. Individuals purchase memberships in exchange for a weekly or bi-weekly bag of fresh (and, in our case, organic) local produce. In turn, the membership fee covers farmer necessities like seed and new tools. A real win-win!”
Get 20 co-workers to sign up, and the company will create a pick up site at your office. For more information call 212.727.2424 and ask for Brooke, or send an email to email@example.com. You also can sign up for a regular non-office CSA at one of their four other Manhattan pick up locations, too.
