CSA and Food Security

This webinar explores community supported agriculture as an important model for building local food security. CSA Programs involve a model where customers buy ‘shares’ at the beginning of the growing season in exchange for a portion of a local farmer’s harvest. Farmers obtain income early in the season, coinciding with a period of high costs. This model invests in local food and supports farmers upfront for the coming season.

Jacob Beaton from Tea Creek Farm and Karen Ageson from Farmers on 57th join us to discuss their experiences building local food security in their communities.
