          198 pages ** binder format

Books and manuals on Community Supported Agriculture to date have focused
largely on specific farms, and have interested hundreds of growers to start
their own projects.

_Making the Connection_ pulls together the experience of many innovative
projects.  While describing the diversity of CSA, this handbook for
producers also addresses common questions and concerns.

Major topics covered are:
- What is CSA?
- Developing a CSA
- Finding and keeping members
- Production for CSA
- Managing the shares

In addition to the narrative text and examples from CSA farms across the
country, _Making the Connection_ includes simple forms for use in running
CSA projects.  Charts for planning production offer handy information, and
worksheets will help farmers consider their own situations.
This handbook also provides additional detail on such topics as legal issues
of CSAs, writing newsletters, and postharvest handling.
