Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) brings eaters in closer touch with their food. By offering people the opportunity to purchase shares of a harvest, farmers benefit by developing an advance market for their products, and eaters not only gain better knowledge of how and where their food is grown and raised, but also get to purchase very fresh, and nutritious food.
In this short video, Laura Masterson of 47th Avenue Farm explains the benefits of work parties, a further extension of the CSA, it offers eaters the chance to work directly with the land in harvesting food, strengthening further the bond between the farmer, the land, and the eater.
