Astoria Park Fireworks Celebration - Thursday, June 27th 7:30 p.m. and beyond
The Astoria Park Fireworks celebration is a festive annual event for our neighborhood. If you would like to share the experience with other Hellgate CSA members, please post on the Hellgate CSA Facebook page that you are interested and would like to meet up and others will do the same. This is not an official member event, but rather an unstructured, grass-roots gathering of anyone interested. Cheers!
Strawberry Picking/Farm Tour - Saturday June 22nd at 10:30 a.m.
Farmer Ray and his team will give a tour of the spring and early summer crops and answer questions, then will turn you loose to pick some strawberries to take back with you. This event is for Hellgate CSA members and their share partners/family members who enjoy the share with them. We regret that we cannot accommodate those who are NOT Hellgate CSA members due to the popularity of this event.
The Hellgate CSA "official" tour time will be 10:30 a.m. but the farm offers tours at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. as well. To reserve your spot on any of the tours, call the Green Thumb Farm Stand 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 631-726-1900. The meeting place for the tour is 2 Rose Hill Road, Water Mill, NY 11976.
This is a very family-friendly event! Please note the weather and dress accordingly (hot, cold, windy, muddy, etc) to set yourself up for an enjoyable time.
