UPDATE: March 2, 2011
In preparation for Season 3 of the 92nd Street Y CSA, our group leader, Danielle Wiedemann is busy planning and looking into ways to continue to improve our fresh, local food supplies program.
Can Urtak help? Yes. Here is a simple example of how Urtak can help feed a connected community, taken from our recent email exchange.
I hope that you are well!
Tello farms called yesterday & they can indeed provide an egg share.
I can’t seem to log onto my Urtak, but what’s your sense of how many shares we should commit to? He’s buying chickens based on what we tell him so I need to be pretty accurate… I know this is random, but any and all egg number help is totally appreciated!!
“Do you want eggs at the CSA?"
was posted/added to the Urtak on 6/13/2010 on our SquareSpace blog.
54 people answered this question.
87% of people who answered the question cared to say yes or no — 47 people.
Of the 47 people, 79% said Yes = 37 people.
If CSA has 108 people, I’m not sure I would double it to 74 egg people. Could be too optimistic? Something between 37 and 74 should be a good start. Perhaps 50?
Hope this is helpful. Here’s the link to your Urtak
Thanks so much!
I had to take a guess earlier today & went for about 50. He said a few more or less would be ok. Very exciting! I’m also adding a fresh baked bread share. Hope all’s going well!

Closer to home, this is a case about the 92nd Street Y CSA, in NYC.
Our CSA is a community supported agriculture program.
Are we what we eat? Or, eating what we are?
This year, Season 2 was sold out. The CSA serves about 110 people picking up local produce weekly, from July through November. There is a waiting list. Who are we people?
This year, Danielle Wiedemann and The Core Group running the 92nd Street Y CSA launched a blog. (Each week’s fresh mix of produce had been emailed to participants in season 1.) And, on the season 2 SquareSpace blog, Danielle embedded an Urtak poll, for all of us to learn more about each other, in this food group.
A quick scan of the poll shows 39 questions and 1383 responses so far.
Not sure what I’ll make for dinner tonight. I’ll add some questions and opinions.
