Why Should Everyone Be A Member of a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It means the community
helps the farmer by investing at the very beginning, helping to buy
seed, hire help, choose sustainable and green growing practices and
doing it in such a way that the farmer can even the playing field of
being a small, often organic producer of local fruits and vegetables,
tailored to their own community market. CSA's are great - everyone
With an organic CSA, you not only get great food but
you contribute directly to a healthy environment too. This "added
value" is one of the most important aspects of an organic CSA. Not too
long ago, pretty much every family farm in America was a small,
sustainable, clean operation, but times have changed. Farmland is
vanishing at an incredible rate, with far reaching consequences for
future generations. We need to take positive action, now. Local
organic farmers are doing their best to bring back the old fashioned
values that have sustained generations of healthy people.
Helping to conserve our options into the future through wise land
stewardship is one of the best choices individuals can make on a daily
basis. So thank you for your support of sustainable, green growing
practices and thank you for becoming a member of our CSA.
