Via an article in the Waseca County News, New Richland woman hopes to grow community supported farming plan, we've learned of another Community Supported Agriculture project in Southern Minnesota with i name we find irresistible: Prairie Harvest Farm.
From the Waseca County News:
“It’s what I love,” Holmgren said about planting, growing and harvesting her crop, which is “essentially organic.”
But a CSA is about more than purchasing fresh produce. It’s also about maintaining the land, promoting sustainable agriculture and supporting the local economy.
“It’s community,” she said. “CSAs reconnect people to the land that sustains them.”
They are looking for 10 to 20 shareholders to join them in the CSA, which is a partnership and shared risk between the farmer and member families. . . .
Readers in the area who can't grow their own gardens should check out the article and farm website. CSAs are not only a great way to get fresh, locally grown food, but also a way to keep food dollars circulating in a community. It's economic development as well as earth-friendly.
