WHAT IS A CSA?

CSA stands for community supported agriculture. A gardener offers a certain number of "shares" for a fee to his customers. A typical share consists of a box of seasonal vegetables, on average about 10 pounds per week, lighter in the spring and heavier in the fall. The gardener may also include other gardening products as well.  Interested customers are required to purchase a share, which may be referred to as a “membership” or a “subscription.” With this share, members will receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the growing season. The gardener will work as diligently as possible, but there are no guarantees. Members enter into their agreement with the understanding that Mother Nature is in control, and there is no crop insurance.

 

 

AN ARRANGEMENT OF THIS TYPE CREATES SEVERAL REWARDS FOR BOTH THE GARDENER AND MEMBERS.

 

ADVANTAGES FOR GARDENERS:

  • Gardeners have the opportunity to spend time marketing the food early in the year and meet members before the hectic harvest season begins.

  • Gardeners receive payment early in the season. This provides the gardener with the ability to purchase supplies for the year.

  • Gardeners have the opportunity to build relationships with the people who eat the food the gardener will grow.

 

ADVANTAGES FOR MEMBERS:

  • Members eat ultra-fresh, flavorful, nutritious, organic food.

  • Members know that their families are not ingesting harmful chemicals.

  • Members are exposed to different varieties of vegetables and are introduced to new ways of cooking.

  • Members are provided with varieties of vegetables that grocery stores may not offer.

  • Members can participate in events held throughout the growing season.

  • Members find that children typically favor food from "their" garden even vegetables they have never been known to eat.

  • Shares not picked up and excess produce is donated to the local Salvation Army in Fargo.

  • Members develop a relationship with the gardener who grows their food and are given the opportunity to learn more about how food is grown.

  • Members know their gardener and know their food.
