What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture is a partnership of mutual commitment between a farm and a community of supporters providing, (alas!), a direct link between the production and consumption of food. This spring and summer (and one year round), area gardens and farms, here in southwest Colorado will be full of vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers.
Farmers select many rare varieties of plants due to their adaptability to the Colorado climate, their natural pest and disease resistance, and their uniqueness.
By joining a locals CSA, you become a shareholder of a farm and a member of a community. In exchange, each week, you will be given a basket full of your share of the harvest.
