Building Community in CSAs: A Canning Project
There is a great deal of support for utilizing CSAs as an economically viable kind of outreach. However, long-term success depends on fine turning and community spirit.
Objectives: To build a sense of community and ownership between shareholders and growers by bringing together shareholders and owners of three local CSAs in a conning project. Based on journals kept by each producer, a manual is being prepared to be used by other CSAs with similar concerns.
Results: The project was extended to allow completion of the manual.
