Hellgate CSA is not the only game in town, so check out these other Queens CSAs

Hellgate CSA usually has a very long waiting list. We are just about to close out our membership for the 2014 season, and there are still many people on the wait list who want to join and won't get a spot. If you added your name to the wait list in February 2014 or later, it doesn't look great for joining for 2014. 

So don't forget about the other wonderful CSAs in nearby neighborhoods. If you have flexibility, maybe one of these will work for you until Hellgate opens up. 

These are:

Despairing on the wait list? Consider Flushing CSA

This isn't to say that you won't get into Hellgate CSA, but the list is long, sometimes a few years. We have started down the wait list for members for this season.

So if you signed up on our wait list in the last year or so, consider joining another nearby CSA for this season. 

Flushing CSA is new and looking for members. Pick ups will be Thursdays, at the Flushing Town Hall, 137-35 Northern Blvd. in Flushing, New York. Go to the Flushing CSA web site for the details. 

Even if you don't stay with Hellgate CSA, there are other options nearby

We understand that people move and schedules change. Maybe you're not living in the Ditmars area of Queens anymore or maybe Tuesday nights are already spoken for, but you still want local, organic produce coming into your life once a week. Consider Harvest CSA on Crescent near 30th Avenue. Harvest CSA is having their membership drive on March 26th, at the Church of the Redeemer at 30-14 Crescent Street, between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. In order to join you must show up.
