Share the Road

What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In this venture, people purchase shares in a planned garden at the beginning of the growing season. The farmer plants, tends, and harvests the crop, supported by this community of shareholders. Shareholders then receive a share of the crop each week throughout the growing season.
