The Fresh and Local Market program builds off season on the legacy of the Fresh and Local CSA. It reinvents the original concept to meet off-season needs – building community around local food production, providing food for the poor, mitigating the environmental impact of our current food system, and enhancing food security & emergency preparedness for residents of metro Washington, D.C.
The project strategy is to create a network CSA model that maximizes productivity of under utilized agricultureal land while coordinating nutritional education, volunteerism and stewardship.
The first step to being Green is through Eating Green.
It’s incredible how much recycling and reusing your dollars and labor support when you work with a farm that is part of the original CSA movement.
