T’is the Season!–CSA’s (community supported agriculture)

peapod_100CSA’s (community supported agriculture) are small farms that offer “shares” in their harvest. Members pay a set fee for a certain number of months and then receive a portion, usually on a weekly basis, of whatever the farm produces during that time. This way, the farmers have a guaranteed income, and customers share the risks facing all farmers–bad weather, poor growing conditions, unexpected emergencies, and natural disasters. For more information on CSAs, view the short documentary video produced by the Center (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rED52iZeaU) and the accompanying discussion guide.
