Volunteer

Volunteers serve farm fresh food at the Annual CSA Open House.

FairShare CSA Coalition has worked to support and connect Community Supported Agriculture farmers and eaters for more than 20 years. We simply could not do it without your help!

In the spirit of building a healthy, engaged community, we rely on hundreds of volunteers to accomplish our work.  We all can do our part in building a strong local food system by supporting our local farmers and eating local food, and then sharing those experiences with others.  Grassroots organizing and efforts are an incredibly effective method of spreading the good word about community supported agriculture.
