If you are thinking about signing up for a summer CSA share, now's the time. Just Food, a nonprofit organization that's leading the charge for a more sustainable, healthy food system in New York City, hosts an annual CSA conference that can give you a lot of information. Details below...
It is geared towards people who want to grow their CSA community; there will be discussions about starting a meat share and keeping volunteers engaged. But there will also be farmers on hand to answer questions about preserving your vegetables and fruit from week to week. The keynote speaker is Cheryl Rogowski, a radio host, farmer in Pine Island, NY, and MacArthur award winner.
