NEW BOOK CALLS FOR EXPONENTIAL EXPANSION OF COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
Journalist Steven McFadden announced publication this month of a new ebook, Awakening Community Intelligence: CSA Farms as Cornerstones.
Over the last three decades many thousands of people in all parts of the world have come to recognize in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) a vehicle for approaching land, food, labor, environment and community in a healthier way. According to the USDA as many as 12,000 new CSA farms have been established in the USA since 1986, directly linking people with the farmers who grow their food. Many thousands more CSA farms have taken root around the world.
Now – in an era with increasing shadows of environmental catastrophe – it’s time to expand exponentially the CSA vision and reality. The opportunity is before us to establish hundreds of thousands of CSA farms in nations around the world, and to thereby employ a proven, egalitarian model to address the radically changing circumstances in our environment, climate, economics, and social relationships.
Awakening Community Intelligence lays out the vision, and sounds a call to action.
