COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA) 101

SUSTAINABILITY
LESSON OF THE WEEK:

The eco-buff’s mantra of "buy local" is never
quite as easy, tasty or rewarding as during growing season
in the Northern Hemisphere. As we prepare for spring to
roll into North America, a growing number of farmers are
finding support from members of their local communities
who are paying for their fair share of the year’s harvest
via a "subscription" method known as "Community
Supported Agriculture" (CSA). There’s no easier way
to buy local and organic than to find a CSA near you. For
a modest subscription fee, you get a variety of locally
grown fruits and vegetables brought to your home weekly.
