CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, allows city residents to have access to fresh produce grown by a regional farmer. CSA members purchase a “share” of produce from a local farm before the harvest season. Shares of produce are brought to the same site for members to pick up each week. By joining a CSA, members learn what foods are in season in the North East, support small, local farmers, discover new varieties of produce, try out new recipes, eat healthier, and reconnect with their food.
