Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

CSAs have been showing us for many years that when bringing together producers and the general public, it can be a win-win situation. By sharing the responsibilities, risks and rewards of farming, not only does the community have access to good food, but the benefits go far beyond including training programmes, high levels of employment, higher quality of life, better connections between farming and communities, better turnover for producers.

CSAs come in many shapes and sizes. For example, The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm thinks of itself as a bit of a giant shared allotment. Members enjoy fresh vegetables from the farm on a weekly basis, with the harvest distributed equally among all members. Helping out on the farm supports the health and well-being of members and fosters community. The farm also provides education and training to support low-carbon food production. 

What we love about it:

Bringing farmers and citizens together!
