Why CSA?

Community Supported/Supportive Agriculture is important for So many reasons…

Locally produced means:

Development of community self-sufficiency and sustainability

Encourages an efficient and sustainable cycle of production from local resources (eg. Hay, soil, compost, tools being shared and cycled)

It means less energy wasted and

better quality produce both nutritionally and for other types of (non-food) production.

Promotes community cohesion, networking

Ethical labor and growing practices for both produce and people!

An opportunity for earning transferable life skills, as well as other education, training. This type of knowledge opens up new markets for small business that supports and expands the local economy.

Provides an avenue for a direct connection with ones consumables (actually growing, seeing them grow, preparing and nurturing plants)

Heightened collective awareness of the environmental-body connection, (ex. local soil and water being consumed.)Enhances confidence, esteem, wholistic connection mental wellness in a unparalleled manner.

CSA is the avenue by which we link these all:
