Want to join a CSA (and get food from a farm?)

Want to get food from an organic farm? Earth Spring Farm, located in Pennsylvania, is accepting signups for their CSA, community supported agriculture. Basically you sign up and pay and they deliver a box of food each week to a number of places around town, including Petworth and Mt. Pleasant. Then you go pick it up and eat!

You can get a small or big box of vegetables, plus you can choose to add fruit, cheese, meat, milk or eggs, and what you actually receive varies by season. Their website has a lot more about how it works, and here are the FAQs.

Some friends in the neighborhood joined one before and really enjoyed it, and they're often small and advertised only by word-of-mouth, so it can be hard to find one.

Pretty cool idea. Let me know in the comments if you've done a CSA before and what you think.

I'd love to split a share with someone in Mt Pleasant if anyone is interested.
