The Phoenix House Career Academy loves the hustle and bustle in our lobby as the DUMBO/Vinegar Hill CSA holds their winter share market for our neighbors. During this season, the vibe is very homey, as shoppers come in from the cold, socialize, and shop. Our doors open in the evening every three weeks on Tuesday nights for share members to pick up their farm fresh vegetables, eggs, and natural apple cider. Year-round, we are proud to welcome their staff, friends, and members to our facility. Winter shares are larger than summer shares, consisting of winter storage crops (potatoes, beets, carrots, radishes, cabbage), nutritious additions to any table, and great for soups and stews! The sight of many varieties of produce reinforces our emphasis of the importance of healthy food choices and lifestyles to the clients and staff of the Academy. For clients to maintain the success of their substance rehab treatment programs, they learn long-term dietary strategies for improving moods, bolstering energy levels, and avoiding illness. Healthy nutritional habits are key to a healthy mind, body and soul for everyone.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) allows shoppers to buy organic vegetables direct from a local farm. Before harvest, members join and pre-pay to purchase fresh, locally grown vegetables. The wide variety of produce at the Share comes from Sang Lee Farms of Peconic, NY. We encourage all “locals” to visit the DUMBO/Vinegar Hill CSA site for information on joining the share; “out of towners” can also check out many great recipes, or learn more about sustainable agriculture.
