Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a great way for those with limited garden space to still eat locally, and support your local community and environment. Many small farmers grow more sustainably, and the food can be more healthful as well.

Here are some great articles on Community Supported Agriculture – learn more, and perhaps you can help support your community (and your family’s holiday table) through a CSA for a holiday feast sometime soon! (And be sure to check our Cooking From Scratch blog for some good CSA recipes – what to do with all those unusual veggies you aren’t normally exposed to?? All the more fun to experiment with, my dear!)

Have a wonderful, fun, warm, and filling Thanksgiving!
