Resource Toolkits – FairShare CSA Coalition

FairShare CSA Coalition Resource Toolkits

FairShare has created toolkits for several of its popular organization initiatives.

The purpose of the toolkits is to provide CSA networks, farmer groups, and workplace CSA businesses with the framework for several of FairShare’s signature programs, so that they may jump-start similar initiatives in their respective regions. Through this work, FairShare continues to support the regional and national growth of the CSA market.

The following toolkits are available for download:

  1. CSA Incentives Toolkit
  2. Food Access Toolkit
  3. Promotions & Fundraising Toolkit
  4. Workplace CSA Toolkit (Introduction)

FairShare also conducted a CSA marketing survey to better understand consumer preferences. These briefs highlight a few key findings from the survey analysis.

Read the briefs:

  1. Health Brief
  2. Consumer Brief
  3. Farmer Brief
