Community Supported Agriculture, also known as CSA, has been around for nearly a quarter century (even longer in Europe). However, thanks to growing demand for healthy local food and support for sustainable farming practices, it has never enjoyed as much popularity as it does today.
Three local CSA farmers (Dina Brewster, The Hickories, Ridgefield; Paul Bucciaglia, Fort Hill Farm, New Milford; and Patricia Popp, Sport Hill Farm, Easton) are coming to Ambler Farm to tell us about their programs, their challenges and their visions of the future for community supported farming.
The event is being held at Ambler Farm on 257 Hurlbutt Street in Wilton on January 11, 2010, from 7 to 9 pm. If you’ve never been to this historic community farm, read all about it on a previous post.
More information about the event — and access to the required registration tool — is available on the Ambler Farm website at www.amblerfarm.org. The event is free of charge for Ambler Farm members, $5 for all others. Contact Neil Gluckin with inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
