What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  Since I’ve started this journey I have seen several different interpretations of this concept because there isn’t one hard and fast standardized model.  Different communities and different farms do it slightly differently.  There is definitely a common thread though and that is this: community supported agriculture is a system where the community that benefits from the food grown, also directly supports it.  This can be small urban gardens or farms that have members who get a share of whatever the garden or farm produces or it can be more of a cooperative where a number of different local farms participate and members get a share of different items from different farms.  The idea however, is always the same, to support local growers and give people direct access to local fresh food.
