What’s a CSA? Should I Join One?

Shared with Permission from Vital Communities

As we are teased with today’s spring-like weather it’s a wonderful time for us to think of all the seedlings being started, and the bounty they’ll bring in a few short months. For this week’s Wellness Wednesday, we share a Vital Communities post on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). CSA is a way to support local agribusiness and engage in the practice of sustainable food sourcing.

CSAs can vary from one farm to the next, but they generally involve a customer buying a “share” for the coming growing season and in return receiving an allotment of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. (Vital Communities, 2022).

To learn more about signing up for a local CSA, please visit Vital Communities “What’s a CSA? Should I Join One“. Vital Communities has curated a list of local farms supporting CSAs and also shares information on financial support for CSA enrollment.

If you have a wellness themed topic you would like to share or learn more about, and/or blog/vlog about as an expert in a health/wellness related field, please reach out to shelby@cclyme.org.
