Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital.

Lefferts CSA Open For Registrants

Below find the cut and pasted info from the Lefferts CSA (d/b/a as the PLG CSA). Go their website and get all the details. You can brows the crucial stuff here, like the March 24 registration deadline.

In other socialist news, local drug dealers are taking a page from the local food movement and starting their very own CSN's, or Community Supported Narcoticulture organizations. By jointly purchasing shares you can cut your drug bills in half with the assurance that your heroin, crack and crystal are made with love, by hand, by nearby meth-labs, or carried by grass-fed, humanely treated camels from organic poppy fields of Afghanistan. Your shares may be picked up at Ray's, in front of Shifty Fifty Lincoln Road, anywhere along Woodruff between Flatbush and Ocean, in front of 35 or 60 Clarkson, next to JJ's on Flatbush near ParksideZ, at various buildings along Hawthorne and Fenimore, or for those preferring the cover of dead-end streets, try Beekman Place.

We joined the Winthrop Street Community Supported Narcotics group in 2012, and there were like eight weeks of nothing but beets and chard before we got even the first scrap of genuine heroin. Never again.
