COVID-19 set a premium on good health and trust. And Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) — long an under-appreciated niche model — offers health and trust in abundance. In this workshop we will hear from farmers who rose to the occasion during a CSA surge, offering consumers an alternative to crowded grocery stores and anonymous food, and supplying instead a weekly box of healthy goods from a single local source. Waiting lists are currently very long. Cooperatives are pivoting to CSA-like models between farmers who have lost their previous markets. Find out how CSA farmers have adapted to help a wary world with some peace of mind, a whole lot of vegetables, and a bit of grounding during a chaotic time.
