Community-sponsored agriculture (CSA)
: Programs in which farmers allow consumers to purchase a share of the season’s harvest for a lump sum at the start of the growing season (fall or winter). In return, the consumer gets weekly boxes of mixed produce, which they pick up on the farm or at a drop spot. Inquire about CSAs at a green market near you, or search online.
