Subscribe to Your Green Food

While more grocery stores carry more local and organic foods than ever before, you'll still likely find the best quality, selection and prices at farmer's markets or other alternative sources. Generally, this also means that you need to plan around the market's schedule, as it may only be open for one day a week; it also likely means you've got to make two shopping trips.

While nothing beats the experience of perusing fresh foods sold by the farmers themselves, your schedule may not allow for the time needed to get the most our of this kind of shopping. If that's the case, you'll probably want to explore community supported agriculture programs (CSA). In this model, you and others buy "subscriptions," or shares, of a farm's crop. At regular intervals (generally weekly), you can pick up your share of the harvest either at the farm, or, sometimes, at delivery locations. You don't need to spend time comparing prices or availability: just pick up your basket of food, and you're good to go!

CSAs are great for both farmers and consumers: farmers know their crop is sold, and buyers get to build a relationship with the person (or people) responsible for planting, harvesting and selling the food they eat. Keep in mind, though, that you don't choose the items in each weekly delivery: you get whatever's ready to harvest. CSAs generally expect payment in full at the beginning of the growing season; a few require members to work a few hours on the farm (which gives you even more knowledge about the source of your food). You'll want to explore CSA options carefully; finding the right one, though, means weekly fresh food straight from the farm - generally at a great price!

Your Action for Today:
Explore the CSAs in Your Area

Are there CSAs available in your area? It's easy to find out: go to Local Harvest's CSA page, and do a search. Take a look at the prices, payment policies, crops available, pick-up practices, and work requirements (if any). You may figure out that a CSA provides a reasonably-priced, convenient way to have greener food ready for your family every week.

Record what you find in your Green Journal. If you've got questions, call the farm - they'll likely be happy to give you more details about their program.
