COMMUNITY SHARED AGRICULTURE
Tn response to the
market for locally and organic-grown produce and her own desire
to contribute to the community, and to steward the land and
preserve the family farm, Emily Dowling began her business –
Root Radical. She grows food for local people using the
Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) model. In her presentation,
she will describe the aims and benefits of CSA, historical
aspects and trends, and how to become involved either as a
provider or as a customer.
