Chelsea Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
The Chelsea CSA is a partnership between Stoneledge Farm in South Cairo, NY and community members of Chelsea on the West Side of Manhattan. Chelsea CSA enables members of all economic backgrounds to enjoy farm-fresh organic vegetables while supporting local agriculture.
We receive space and support services for this effort from Hudson Guild, a non-profit settlement house serving Chelsea since 1895. The Chelsea CSA project was begun in May 2000 by a Hudson Guild staff member working with Just Food. Chelsea CSA has since transitioned to an all-volunteer effort which depends on shareholder support for continued success of current “locavore” offerings and development of new ones.
