1) Locate a farmer who is doing CSA (listed below) and become a member or subscriber with their CSA.
2) Members pay at the beginning of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest.
3) Once harvesting begins, members receive a weekly share of vegetables, meat or fruit at a drop off location.
