Sign up to support Community-Supported Agriculture on Friday

All over the country, farmers are encouraging locals to sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) for the 2019 season. This Friday, Feb. 22, marks CSA Day, a day set aside to promote small farms and healthy eating practices.
 
“CSA is a subscription to a season’s worth of sustainable, locally grown produce that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting season,” explained a recent National CSA Day press release.

CSA is a win-win for everyone involved. The member can enjoy the quality of fresh fruits, vegetables and meats offered in “shares” each week on their kitchen table for an entire summer season.
