What is Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial commitment between farmers and their community. Members pay in advance before the start of the season and receive a share of the harvest. This provides operating capital for the farm and allows the farmer to plan for the season. In return, the farmer provides CSA members with a weekly share in the bounty.
Why Join Teens4Good CSA?
“The Teens 4 Good CSA was a great experience and definitely worth the cost. I loved the weekly variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers. Great portions and the produce was always in great shape. I also enjoyed the weekly newsletter’s recipe suggestions. Looking forward to participating again this year!”
– Brian Cassidy, CSA Member.
