Last year, Lancaster Fresh Farms designated Old City Green as a drop off point for its CSA (the term "CSA" stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It's a great way to get an abundance of vegetables for a season (generally May through November) while at the same time helping farmers by ensuring that they'll be able to sell what they've grown). We joined the CSA, purchasing a half share for our family of two, and really enjoyed our weekly receipt of fresh produce and the convenience of the Old City Green site.
Old City Green is set to be a dropoff point for Lancaster Fresh Farms again this year, however they need 13 more CSA members by April 8 to remain a host site. (Lancaster Fresh Farms requires each host to have 30 members). If you or your friends want to learn more or sign up, click here.
Old City Green delivers, including delivery of CSA shares. They can deliver to your home for $10 each delivery or $8.50 per week if you sign up for delivery for the whole CSA season (May – October) or $6.50 per week if you and your close neighbors get together. The delivery area spans roughly from First Street to Fourteenth Street and from Massachusetts Avenue to U Street, Northwest. If interested, call Old City Green 202-412-CITY (2489).
Speaking of, Old City green re-opens for spring tomorrow!!!! Drop by and check out the newly stocked plants and flowers.
