Benefit small farmers, producers, consumers and the community when you make your purchases at the market.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically, the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription) and in return receive a box (bag,basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
Enroll in the Community Supported Agriculture program at GVSU. Due by April 15th.
Feel good about having an impact in your community and nation when it comes to food.
