Last year, Katchkie CSA delivered 130,000 pounds of vegetables to both offices and their community pickup locations.

The owners of Great Performances and Katchkie Farm–the Manhattan catering company and not-for-profit upstate agriculture center we wrote about last year–are launching a workplace CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program for those who work too late to hit their neighborhood pickups, and the sign-up season is starting now. All you have to do is get 20 co-workers to sign up and they’ll create a pick up site at your office. For more information call 212.727.2424 and ask for Brooke or send an email to email@example.com. You can sign up for a regular non-office CSA at one of their four other Manhattan pick up locations.
By all accounts, the first-ever live auction of Tri-state heirloom vegetables (and a few proteins) at the house of Sothebys last year was a smashing success. Farmers mingled with the city’s fabulous; local crops were put on the block; and the proceeds went to help support agriculture and education programs with GrowNYC and The Sylvia Center.
