Flushing foodies and locavores rejoice: The neighborhood is getting its own Community Supported Agriculture group.
Members will receive produce grown by mostly organic farmers within a 100 mile radius of the borough. The veggies will arrive at a central pickup location weekly during the harvest season, which generally runs from June to November. Each batch will be enough to feed a family of four.
The annual cost is $523 and covers 26 weeks of vegetables, or about $20 a week. Founders of the group said members would be helping the local economy while exercising an option outside of nationwide food growers and manufacturers.
