I am not sure if this was posted before, I didn't do a search. I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this either. I just found out about
this... must have been living under a rock! I live in a big farming community and thought this was very cool.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
For those of you interested in supporting our local farmers and enjoying the benefits of non-GMO, organic and unprocessed fruits, vegetables and
herbs, please take a look at the CSA program. Local Harvest is the catalyst that connects consumers with local farmers.
The basic idea is that you as the consumer, buy a share or a half share. Your share is in the form of a weekly supply of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Check out the CSA program here to learn more about this valuable program:
Local Harvest connects people looking for good food with the farmers who produce it. Buying local is about enjoying real food, grown yourself or
purchased from people you trust. It's about developing strong local economies and producing food on a human scale. It's about eating seasonally,
practicing the art of cooking, and sitting down to enjoy meals together. It requires ample local and regional producers, processors, and distributors.
As we see it, the goal of the local food movement is to create thriving community-based food systems that will make high quality local food available
