Community CSA and Growing Food

6 years ago

A few years ago we heard briefly about a group called CSA or Community Supported Agriculture.  CSA programs are a system that connect people who live in urban areas to an environmental and socially responsible source of food from a local farm.  These people are genius.  Basically, you buy a certain size bag of farm fresh goodies and pick them up once a week or so.  Sometimes the groups will even drop them off for you!  Here is the local group in the North Fulton area.

Items that you get to choose will change as the crops change, however being that this is the south, and we do have great farming all across our states.  We are really lucky to have more than just radishes and kale!  This month I can choose strawberries, pineapple, pears, broccoli, sweat potatoes, red onion, mushrooms, green leaf lettuce, and more!

Check out this Community Supported Agriculture site for more info and your local branch.  If you have used CSA before we would love to hear some of your stories!  What creative recipes have you come up with?  Do you know of any other groups like this we should check out?
