JOIN A LOCAL BRONX CSA:

WHAT IS CSA? CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA is a relatively recent phenomenon in the United States and Canada. A CSA equivalent, called teikei, which literally translated means "partnership" or "cooperation", was first developed in Japan by a group of women concerned with the use of pesticides, the increase in processed and imported foods and the corresponding decrease in the farm population. The more philosophical translation for teikei is "food with the farmer's face" (Van En 1992). In 1965, these women initiated a direct, cooperative relationship in which local farmers were supported by consumers on an annual basis.

CSA allows city residents to have direct access to high
quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers.
