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.

January 19, 2008, Kettunen Center near Tustin, Michigan

February 23, 2008, Kalamazoo, Michigan (Public Library - Downtown)

March 8, 2008, Ann Arbor (Leslie Science Center - Nature House)

Times will be announced, but are expected to be 9:30 or 10 am to 4:00 pm. Lunch will be included.

Participants will take home a copy of the training manual for CSA that CSA-MI produced (details at
