What is a Community Shared Agriculture Program?
Community Shared Agriculture is the coming together of the consumer, the farmer and the land in order to support and grow sustainable agriculture in the local community. To participate in a CSA, a consumer pledges their support to a farm operation by purchasing a farm share. This share allows the consumer the opportunity to actively participate in the growth of local farming and in return they receive a weekly box of fresh produce directly from the farmer’s land.
By becoming a participant in the CSA initiative you not only support a local farmer and agriculture, but you also help build a more sustainable environment for the Ottawa area. You get to share in the all the rewards of farming by being a part of a local farm.
See our page “What our shares are all about” to find out more about our CSA box and what’s inside.
