Community Supported Agriculture – CSA
CSA aims to bring producers of good food closer to consumers. Both farmers and consumers are ‘share holders’ who offer financial support for farming in advance. In return they share the bounty as well as risk of the farming. In the same time they gain satisfaction from reconnecting to the land and participating directly in food production.
Food Connect offers an inspiring example of how this can work
