Last week I received an email from a local farm informing us that due to the record rain and flooding last November they would not be able to participate in this years CSA. Community Supported Agriculture is a way to buy a share of a local farmer’s harvest. When we participated in their Summer CSA program we would drive to the farm every week to pick up our box of fresh organic vegetables. When the harvest was good, we got more food. Which for us amounted to boxes of extra berries to can. When the harvest went bad you would get less. One of the great things about our farm was that if for some reason that week’s harvest fell short, you would be compensated with coupon vouchers at the farmer’s markets in the area, who were also participating in a CSA. I urge you to find a local farmer in your area and take part in a community supported agriculture. Not only will you be a positive force in your community but you will have access to the freshest fruits and vegetables that you will ever taste.
