What is a CSA?

Posted 2/16/2020 6:10pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Here is a link to a video that helps describe who we are and what we do.  The CSA in the video is not Downtown Harvest, but longtime members will enjoy seeing the similarities:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77Z3pHv0_iY

We bring organic food to our urban neighborhood, we work together as a community group, we contribute significantly to a local food pantry and we support local farming.

This video also highlights the culinary education side of the CSA.

Most people shop for foods that they already know how to use.  CSA members sometimes receive an item that is unfamiliar to them.  That causes research, recipe exchanges and experimentation.  A CSA can add to your repertoire in the kitchen in addition to all the other wonderful things that happen when you are a member of a CSA.
