A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE ON RESERVATIONS

Communities value the relationship with the farmer and the land that participation in a CSA provides. CSA’s can also act as educational tools, where farmers teach their communities about the land, what it takes to produce vegetables from week to week and provide nutritious recipes for the produce they deliver.
