How does Love Grows CSA work?
Who are the growers? What do they stand for?
What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a symbiotic relationship between the members of the farm, the growers and the farm itself. It is a way of forging long-lasting bonds and cultivating a deeper connection to our food, the earth and our community.
As a member, you are assured access to fresh, organic, locally grown food with your payment in advance of the growing season. You also get a deeper understanding and involvement with the people who produce your food through direct communications with the growers.
In many cases, CSA is a way of assuring residents of the surrounding community that the farmland itself will continue to be a place of nourishment and learning. They get to walk the land and have an experience that can’t come from a grocery store or even a farmer’s market.
By receiving literal seed money in advance of the growing season, the growers are able to purchase materials needed to ensure a prosperous season. We are also given the opportunity to focus on growing during the season with the assurance that the food already has a place in our members' households.
