I called last night and we are going to buy a full share and then I'm going to do a "work share" to get double the amount. I just have to work 4 hours on Tuesdays, beginning in mid June through the growing season(roughly 20 to 24 weeks). I figure I will get some exercise, some sunshine, fresh fruits and veggies(flowers and herbs), and lots of valuable gardening knowledge. Plus, I know where the food is coming from and it should work out to save us money in the long run.
Your local CSA farms aren't just fruit and veggies. They can be beef, poultry, and pork too.
And cheese and fiber...
If you aren't up for your own big garden, but want to buy local and fresh, check out your local CSA farms... but hurry because most only take so many shares and they have to have their numbers in before the planting season starts.
