Looking for an Atlanta CSA?
“Find the shortest, simplest way between the earth, the hands and the mouth.” – Lanza del Vasto
CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) groups are a great way to get access to delicious, fresh, local produce and connect with local farms. As the weather gets warmer, many CSAs are getting started and looking for members. If you haven’t yet found a CSA, the Small Farms CSA runs from May 2nd through August 15th. Operated by Judith Winfrey and Joe Reynolds of Love is Love Farm, they will bring your fresh produce from their farm and a few other local farms. You receive a weekly shipment of veggies and you can also choose to add meat to your CSA from Riverview Farms. The Small Farms CSA offers two pick up locations:
- The Universalist Unitarian Church on Cliff Valley Sunday mornings from 10am to 12:30pm. http://www.uuca.org
- The East Atlanta Village Farmers Market on Thursday evenings from 4pm to 8pm. http://www.farmeav.com
Here’s a list of items you might find in the CSA:
Arugula, Basil, Bush and Pole Beans, Beets, Broccoli, Carrots, Cherry Tomatoes, Collard Greens, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Fennel, Field Peas, Green Garlic, Heirloom Tomatoes, Leeks, Lettuce Heads, Kale, Okra, Pac Choi, Pears, Salad Greens, Salad Radishes, Spinach, Strawberries, Sweet Turnips, Sweet Onions, Sweet Peppers, Summer Squash, Tomatoes, and Watermelons.
