COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a type of agricultural system where members of the community directly invest in and support local farmers. In exchange for their investment, CSA members receive a share of the farm’s produce throughout the growing season. CSA programs can offer a number of benefits to both farmers and consumers. This allows farmers to predict their income for the year and helps to ensure that they will be able to continue operating their farm. For consumers, CSA shares typically include a variety of seasonal produce, and members often have the opportunity to visit the farm and see how their food is grown. In addition to supporting local farmers, CSA members also enjoy fresher, more flavourful produce.
Your veggie box will include 10-15 varieties of vegetables each week. You will get to experience how the seasons change right trough the vegetables that come in your box.
