Or community supported agriculture, if you aren't familiar with the acronym.  We joined the local one in our area this year.  They've had a waiting list since I first learned of their existence, but this year had a few openings.

Starting the week of May 23rd we'll get a weekly selection of fresh produce from a few local farms.  They send an email each week a couple of days ahead of time to let us know what we're getting and suggestions for how to use it.

I'm excited to have fresh produce grown without chemicals at a price I can afford!  Do you belong to a CSA or any other food buying group/co-op? 

Anyone interested in finding out more, you can search your area at http://www.localharvest.org/. There are other sites that do this so if you know of one, please post it!

No.  I thought about it this year since our CSA will let us pay with money or with 40 hrs. labor at the farm, but I didn't sign up.

We have our own large garden, grown without chemical sprays, and that will keep us going for a long time.

Yes we do and I cannot wait for it to start again! Get ready for WAY too much food and to try things you never knew existed!

Oh and stash away all that money you are saving too!

I don't know if we have one here. That's a great idea I started a garden at my mom's house this year.
