My family is currently participating in Sandy Spring CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and enjoying it. We have an opportunity to start a CSA site here in DC neighborhoods for the 2012 season, working with Sandy Spring CSA, which has been in operation for ten years. Here is how it works. You sign up in the winter for a subscription to organic vegetables and fruits that you recieve May through Oct in a weekly share box, delivered to a specific location near you. The site host provides a place for the weekly produce boxes to be delivered for pick up by members and, in return, the host receives a free veggie and fruit share worth $950. It is a growing part of the local food system. Good for the earth, the eaters and the farmers. If you are interested in being a site host, please contact Erin to explore. [email protected] or 301-438-3927. Their website is www.sandyspringcsa.com
