1. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Did you know that a tomato usually travels about 1,300 miles from where it is 
grown to your salad bowl? Consider an alternative. Join a CSA farm, and join 
thousands of others who want to support local farmers while receiving 
delicious, healthy and, above all, fresh produce all season long. With your 
subscription, you purchase a “share” of the produce harvest, or a weekly 
portion from someone you come to know and trust. Some farms also offer fruit, 
herbs, flowers and other products. 

2.  The Chef's Collaborative

The Chefs Collaborative is a network of chefs, restaurateurs and other 
culinary professionals who promote sustainable 

cuisine by teaching children, supporting local farmers, educating each other &
 inspiring their customers to choose 

clean, healthy foods.
