Sharing the Harvest

A Citizen’s Guide to Community Supported Agriculture

Overview

From the publisher

An increasing number of American families are joining CSAs (community-supported agriculture) in response to the globalization of our food supply. The premise is simple: Create a partnership between local farmers and nearby consumers, who become members or subscribers in support of the farm. In exchange for paying in advance — at the beginning of the growing season, when the farm needs financing — CSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms in their own communities.

In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSAs not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike. Thinking and buying locally is quickly moving from a novel idea to a mainstream activity. The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and, with this revised edition, Sharing the Harvest is poised to lead the way toward a revitalized agriculture.
