Sharing the Harvest: A Guide to Community Supported Agriculture by Elizabeth Henderson and Robyn Van En
To an increasing number of American families, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) 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....CSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms in their own community."
Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSA not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike. The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and, in this thoroughly revised and expanded edition , it is poised to continue leading the way towards a revitalized agriculture.
