In case you didn’t know, “CSA” stands for “Community Supported Agriculture,” and now is the time for all good local foodniks to come to the aid of their local farms by subscribing to a CSA from your favorite farmer. Each week, you’ll get a box of fruits and vegetables fresh off the land—you’ll have no problem getting your “Five A Day” with a CSA.
The easiest way to pick the farm you’d like to support is to visit Gaining Ground’s website at growchattanooga.org and check out their CSA sign-up page. Thirty area farms are listed, along with a description of produce items raised and farming methods used on each, plus a little inside information.
Other groovy local food events are also listed by Gaining Ground and it’s our guess they’ll be announcing another free local-foods cookbook for the summer, so stay hungry, my friends.
