The Washington Post has a useful article about local community-supported agriculture programs (CSAs). For an annual membership fee, you’ll receive a weekly box of seasonal produce for a set number of weeks. By participating, you not only support local farmers, but you also assure that you will be well stocked with delicious fruits and vegetables that aren’t shipped half way across the world. According to writer Walter Nicholls, more farmers than ever are participating this year and shares sell out fast. So even though it’s still chilly outside, now is the time to sign up.
