This manual is a helpful guide for organizations that are interested in developing and implementing a Workplace CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). The goal of the Workplace CSA program highlighted in this resource is to build and strengthen direct marketing opportunities for farmers in the three counties served in western Massachusetts. Workplace CSAs represent a partnership between a workplace, a farmer, and often a facilitating organization.
The guide includes information on all aspects of the program such as how-to assess the need, identify partners, assess capacity, distribute the produce at the site, etc. This is a very helpful guide for an organization interested in replicating a similar workplace CSA program.
