Sharing the Harvest: A Guide to Community Supported Agriculture
In this new highly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making Community Supported Agriculture not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike.
To an increasing number of American families the CSA (community supported agriculture) is the answer 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 advanceóat the beginning of the growing season, when the farm needs financingóCSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms
in their own community.
In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSA a viable economic model. Thinking and buying local 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.
