2014 WINTER South Bronx CSA shares are available!


If you are interested in ordering a share or shares for an organization, let us know!

Just like last winter, the Winter Share will be a produce box delivered once a month, on the second Tuesday of the month, from December through March. Each box will include 7-9 items, weighing 15-25 pounds — think hearty greens, apples, pears, winter squash, white and sweet potatoes, cabbage, carrots, beets, onions, garlic, and greenhouse lettuce. As always, we’ll pick your produce based on what’s in season and grown in New York State using sustainable farming methods.

As you are signing up to be a Winter Shareholder, you’ll also have the options to also subscribe to our extra share subscriptions:

  • winter share 2014-2015 4x6 flyer PAGE 1
  • Dozen Egg Share
  • Winter Fruit Share (apples & one preserved product)
  • Bean Share (two types of beans, one pound of each)
  • Dairy Share (butter, yogurt/kefir, & cheese)
  • Bread Share (multigrain loaf & corn tortillas)

After that, our Web Store is stocked with a number of a la carte “Add-On” items that we source from the farms in our farmer network. Need a stocking stuffer? In the Web Store, you’ll find sweets and gifts — i.e., honey, maple syrup, jam, tea, and farm-made lip balms and hand salves.

Sign up today, to keep the farm love flowing in the wintertime.

THE SOUTH BRONX CSA is a community-driven initiative that brings the people of the community together to build the necessary resources and infrastructure to continue to transform the South Bronx into an accessible and affordable food oasis. Our mission is to create affordable access to locally and organically grown vegetables for everyone in the South Bronx and beyond. Join today!

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a community-based movement that creates affordable access to healthy foods for city-residents while allowing local farmers to thrive in an environment that is increasingly competitive and unfavorable. Before the growing season, CSA members purchase a share of food from a partnering local farmer, allowing the farmer to focus on farm duties instead of struggling to secure a customer base and competing against large agribusiness.

Thank you to all our supporters.

This year your support has allowed us to provide outdoor educational opportunities for over 1000 youth from the South Bronx and NYC.


You allow us to educate young people, regardless of need or ability to pay, through our Environmental Education programs.

You enable us to research, document, and organize about  the incredible public space opportunities and cultural history of our waterfront, and prevented any work or any public monies released to Fresh Direct.

You permit us to celebrate and support the many schools and organizations  and the CSA and Farmer’s Market who use Brook Park and make our neighborhood so special.

You make it possible for us to move forward on our initiative to divert 1,000,000 millions of rainwater a year from the sewer system to create a wetland habitat that will replicate the historic brook that ran through our community.

And so much more.

Thank you from Friends of Brook Park team. 

Your support is what makes our work possible.

Here is a great video from our friends at Rebel DIaz Arts Collective for this time of year, it is called “Thankstaking”.

New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI), a leading civil rights advocacy group, held its 2014 Felix A. Fishman Awards Luncheon at the House of the Association of the New York City Bar. Honored at the event were Nisha Agarwal, Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs, which promotes the well-being of immigrant communities, and South Bronx Unite, a coalition working together to improve and protect the social, environmental, and economic future of the South Bronx. Both were recognized for their progressive advocacy work around social and environmental justice.“The Felix A. Fishman Awards luncheon is a chance for us to applaud the inspiring work some of our noteworthy community leaders have accomplished,” said McGregor Smyth, Executive Director of New York Lawyers for the Public Interest. “We cannot serve our local communities without leaders like Nisha and South Bronx Unite, and hope to continue working closely with both until New York is a more just place.”“South Bronx Unite strives to improve the quality of life for our local residents, especially when it comes to our children’s health. New York Lawyers for the Public Interest has been an integral partner in these efforts, particularly in our community’s ongoing efforts to oppose FreshDirect’s relocation to the South Bronx,” said Mychal Johnson, Co-founder, South Bronx Unite. “We are humbled to have been selected as a Felix A. Fishman Awards recipient and hope to continue this long journey with NYLPI until all future development decisions are made with the community’s input.”15836353295_fdfbecc6d7_z
