Are you dreaming of spring and signing up for your 2016 CSA share? Have you heard of CSA and want to learn more about it? Do you long for a closer connection to your food and community?
FairShare’s 24th Annual CSA Open House is scheduled for noon-4 p.m. Sunday, March 13 at Monona Terrace, 1 John Nolen Drive in Madison [map]. More than 30 farmers who deliver shares to the greater Madison area will be in attendance to answer your questions and share information about their farms. Learn how CSA works and how to make the most of your CSA shares at free workshops throughout the event.
This year, in addition to our farmers, many local food producers will also be sampling and selling their products. This event is also the same day as the Natural Family Expo, held downstairs at Monona Terrace.
Watch for FairShare’s 2016 CSA Farm Guide in the Isthmus on Thursday, March 3, or read it online, here. It lists FairShare-endorsed farms across Southern Wisconsin and includes farm descriptions, a share chart, share types, and pick-up locations, plus infographics on how to select a farm that’s a good fit. To get started on your farm search online, see the Full Farm List, perform a Custom Farm Search, and play with the Pick-Up Locations Map.
