Green Thumb, one of Long Island's most venerable Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) providers, has teamed up with Cinema Arts Centre to offer Huntington residents a weekly supply of organic produce.
Every Thursday, vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers from the Water Mill farm will be delivered to Cinema Art's Sky Room Cafe. Members of the CSA can pick up their baskets from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. The first pick-up is this Thursday, June 4, and Green Thumb will keep on delivering through Dec. 10.
If you want to take advantage of Green Thumb's first delivery on Thursday, sign up by Tuesday, June 2, at 5 p.m.; the cost is $643. Or show up at Cinema Arts between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and sign up there; the cost will be $625 and your first pick-up will be Thursday June 11. Members of Cinema Arts Centre will receive a $50 discount on membership. (The later you sign up, the less expensive the share; new members will be accepted until Labor Day.)
In early June, members will be receiving strawberries, lettuce, Jerusalem artichokes, oregano and scallions. Green Thumb also offers "add ons" for members who want more flowers, herbs or, later in the summer, tomatoes.
For more information or to sign up, contact Suzanne Zoubeck at 631-421-4864.
