A CSA is Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA) is where consumers buy a “subscription” from a local farmer just as you would a newspaper or magazine. For your weekly subscription, you receive a share of fresh, locally grown fruit, vegetables, eggs and or meats throughout the growing season.
This relationship supports the farmers by ensuring that their crops will be purchased and helps consumers by providing a product that is fresh, nutritious and locally grown. While grocery stores don’t have seasons, by participating in a CSA you are guaranteed to have foods that are in season and have retained more of their nutritional value.
The CSA program at Life University (LIFE) was recently featured in Atlanta Magazine. One of the few CSA’s on Atlanta area campuses, our CSA program is a joint venture between Split Cedar Farm in Henry County and the LIFE Community.
