Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are so important to folks that want to eat healthy and know where their food comes from. Joining a csa gives you access to local, fresh produce, often from a nearby family farm. Also there are so many community and environmental benefits for joining a csa. We are fortunate to have a csa in Parkchester. Join Parkchester CSA! For more info, go to http://parkchestercsa.blogspot.com (on the right, click on csa application). For more information on csas in general, go to Just Food’s website.
