CSA from Groundwork Organics Farm
We got so much food this year!
Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a relatively new socio-economic model of farming and food distribution. A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA’s focus is usually on a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, sometimes dairy products and meat. The term CSA is mostly used in the USA, but a variety of similar production and economic sub-systems are in use worldwide. wiki
Week 3, 20, 23, 25 were either picked up by a family member, or donated to food-for-lane-county. Week 28 was picked up as our final box, but unfortunately I didn’t get a photo before it was unpacked and divided up.
2008 CSA is over! Whatever shall we do! I can’t wait for Spring 2009!
Thank you so much Gabe & Sophie!
