Clinton hill CSA- how big is the box?

  • 1

I'm thinking about joinging, but have this vision of having a fridge overflowing with veggies. How much is in a regular box? It will be for just me until late summer. Will it be too much?

Thanks!

  1. You get a lot of veggies, if you want them. The pick up point is at a school, and when you get there there is a list posted detailing what each person is allowed to take for the week, and you fill up your own box or bag. If you don't want something, just don't take it. Usually, you get TONS of greens and other kind of unusual veggies, and not as much as you might like of the popular things like tomatoes, corn, etc. It's a lot for one person, but again, you don't have to take it all. You might want to consider splitting the share with a friend. For me, it was fun to learn to be creative with the new veggies I encountered, and of course to support locally grown food.
