Meet & Greet with Farmer Ted

Please join us!

Each year in the early springtime, our beloved and very awesome farmer Ted makes the four hour drive from Windflower Farm down to our Lower East Side community garden, to hang out with returning members and meet prospective new ones. He gives a great little presentation on his farming philosophies, as well as the logistical details of how the CSA farm share works.

We serve light refreshments provided by Ted’s neighbors at Lewis Waite Farm, who run our a la carte program (which allows members to order things like meats, dairy products, coffee beans, bread, maple syrup, and more throughout the season).
