The CSA Zoo is a celebration of Community Supported Agriculture. The CSA Zoo is here to educate, promote, and serve as a little village in the Zoobird community where people and organizations who are interested in CSA can gather.
"Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
This arrangement creates several rewards for both the farmer and the consumer." (from Local Harvest
