Community Supported Agriculture Training

five_springs_farm(z 5 NW MI)December 1, 2007

Thinking about starting a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm or adding CSA to your farm?

After a season or two as a CSA grower do you need some advice?

This is a chance to discuss your project with seasoned CSA growers!

The format will be 'Farmer-to-Farmer.' A panel of experienced CSA growers will make short presentations, with each grower offering insight into their 'take' on each topic. The needs of the participants will guide additional discussion.
