Sharing the Harvest: A Citizen’s Guide to Community Supported Agriculture
by Elizabeth Henderson with Robyn Van En
2009; 320 pages; 8″ x 10″; paperback; ISBN: 978-1933392103

To an increasing number of American families the CSA (community supported agriculture) is the answer to the globalization of our food supply. Sharing the Harvest explores a simple premise: create a partnership between local farmers and nearby consumers, who become members or subscribers in support of the farm. In exchange for paying in advance–at the beginning of the growing season, when the farm needs financing–CSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms in their own community.

In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSA not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike. Thinking and buying local is quickly moving from a novel idea to a mainstream activity.

The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and, with this revised edition, Sharing the Harvest is poised to lead the way toward a revitalized agriculture.
