Our resource sections provides CSA specific and general farming and food related information to both farmers and consumers. These pages are currently under active construction – please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have suggestions you’d like us to add.
FairShare has a nice little library of sustainable agriculture books, magazines, audio recordings (from the Organic Farming Conference), and videos. Growers are welcome to come check out materials – take a look at our Resource Library List.
Also be sure to look at our Events Calendar, which contains a comprehensive list of educational programs from several organizations in the Midwest, including MOSES, CRAFT, Practical Farmers of Iowa, and others. It also lists webinars and regional conferences you may want to attend!
