The CSA program I belong to started with 100 members in 1996. It now has 900. You get a nice newsletter every week when you pick up your food telling you how the farm is going and how the crops are coming along. I love it, it ends up costing me $14 a week for a big grocery bag stuffed with food.CSA programs are awesome! I went to school up in Stevens Point Wisconsin where my roomate and I participated in community agriculture events, and ethnobotany. You would always meet tons of interesting people, and learn so much. Hopefully, It'll be something that catches on in the near future even more then it already has.
