Community Supported Agriculture

Explaining the growths and benefits of CSAs!

What is CSA and what does it do?

Community supported agriculture involves a network of local growers and consumers who partner together to share the risks and benefits of producing food. Some members will pay a local grower in the beginning of the harvest season, and then when harvest time arrives, the member will receive weekly shares of whatever is being grown. It is also possible to contribute labor instead of money.

It benefits the whole community!

Many CSAs integrate the whole community into their efforts. They organize events, potlucks, fun stuff for the kids of members, and some even offer scholarships.
