Oct. 25 CSA webinar for New Farmers
UVM Extension New Farmer Project Webinar
A CSA Primer for New Farmers
October 25, 7:00 pm
Community Supported Agriculture continues to be a burgeoning movement for small-scale, sustainable farms. As the number of farms using this marketing model increase, so do the many variations of the CSA farm. Join Jean Hamilton, NOFA Vermont's Market Development and Consumer Access Coordinator, and Joe Buley of Screamin' Ridge Farm and the Central VT Food Hub to learn about CSAs. Jean will give an overview of the CSA model and highlight innovations made by Vermont farmers. Joe Buley will talk about the Central Vermont Food Hub, a unique CSA that offers products from various farms, both fresh and prepared.
