Farms of Tomorrow: Community Supported Farms Farm Supported Communities
In this book, the authors weave together an exploration of the simple, yet elegant theory of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), and examples of over seven farms and communities that have embraced this approach. The book offers profound insight into the conditions that make CSAs such a positive and hope-filled alternative as we enter the 1990s. It also includes lists of resources and contacts so readers who are interested can initiate CSAs in their own communities.
