In recent years, local food, urban farming and agricultural practices have been recent additions to the sustainability discussion. In Colorado, agriculture alone contributes $41 billion to the state economy, employing nearly 173,000 people!
Our decisions about what we eat will change how food is grown, who grows it and the community we live in.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
A CSA model involves consumers who support a farmer financially by paying for a share of the farm's production prior to each growing season. Think a magazine subscription! This arrangement allows farmers to buy needed upfront capital without as much financial strain - the seeds, transplants and other inputs they need for the growing season, as well as paying their farm labor without waiting until harvest to generate revenue.
Why a CSA?
- Community Investment
- Healthier Soil
- Young Farmers
- Less Debt for Farmers
- Farmer-Member Relationship
