How to join a CSA
How I did it: Happened across the Web site for Sweetwater Organic Community Farm and noticed they were down the street, so when I quit my office job I decided we needed a guaranteed source of fresh vegetables and a reason to eat them. I spent some of the last of my final paychecks on the CSA membership and it's been completely worth it so far. Trying new vegetables is awesome, and fresh organic veggies last a lot longer in the fridge than store-bought.
Lessons & tips:
- Search around and make an informed and thoughtful decision as to which CSA(s) you want to join, especially on localharvest.org, and ask around at local farmers' markets, to see what CSA options you have. There are a bunch in my area, and I'm glad I'm at the one I chose, but I could have gone with any of them, depending on what I wanted out of the CSA. (Some grow more herbs, some grow vegetables, some are organic, etc.)
- Save fridge space! Or have another way to store/use all the vegetables every week (or every other week). There will be lots, and you don't want to let them go to waste!
- If you don't use a ton of vegetables, see if there's a half share membership available. That's what I have and it's STILL almost too much food for two of us to finish easily in two weeks!
