CSA stands for community supported agriculture. It brings growers and eaters together.
By becoming a member of Green Being’s winter CSA, you become a part of our farm. As such, you are entitled to a share of the harvest. Every 2 weeks, we bring you your share to a central location. We have two share sizes to suit the needs of different households. Learn more about our program, sign up for a CSA share, or read on for more information on the CSA concept.
Members submit payment at the start of the season. This commitment enables the farmer to run the farm without having to rely on loans, and lets the farmer know how many people to grow for. It takes a lot of the financial risk out of farming. Then, when the CSA begins, you sit back and we bring the goods to you.
The CSA concept has been around for decades, but is only becoming a mainstream idea in Ontario. Members of the farm benefit from the connection to the place and the people who grow their food, and receive the highest quality organically grown food possible. Here’s a summation of the benefits of CSA, compiled by Ferme Tournesol in Quebec
