Simple Kids contributor Emily Carter is filling in today over at Simple Mom while Tsh is on maternity leave.

This spring our family decided to try something we have never done, or even heard of before. We joined a local CSA.

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Basically, that means you have a local farm that is supported by community members who purchase a “share.”  Typically, shares are picked up weekly and contain a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Why Should You Join?

We have had such a positive experience with our CSA.  Here are my top three reasons you should look into joining one in your area.

  1. We have been a member of our local CSA off and on for several years. It IS a great place for families and kids.

    I would recommend picking up a vegetable reference book like Vegetables from Amaranth to Zucchini: The Essential Reference (http://astore.amazon.com/jupljo-20/detail/0688152600). I had NO IDEA what I was getting in my CSA box when I first started!
