CSA in Manhattan?

Does anyone know of a community garden/produce organization in Manhattan? Someone once mentioned to me that there are groups that run community gardens and deliver fresh produce weekly or monthly for a flat rate. Any ideas?

Caz, where in Manhattan are you? I don't know from community gardens, but there are CSA (community supported agriculture) groups that provide fresh organic produce to members during the growing season. I'm aware of one at Columbia U. and another on the west side. Both of these are supporting Roxbury Farm.

And here's a list of CSA group locations in Manhattan.

urban organic is maybe the place. They are not the growers themselves but have relationships with organic growers and farmers outside the city. they do deliverys to each borrough on a specific day and you can decide from 2 or three sizes of packages.

I was using this for awhile mostly because the veggies in my neighborhood(lic) are terrible but I stopped becuase I wasn't using the stuff they delivered quick enough. It is very fresh produce and always exciting to get a package! They decide what goes into the weekly box but I think you can substitute a few things.

have a look, they are really good. oh and they include recipes that sort of match what goes in the weekly box.
