About this title

Synopsis:

This timely sequel to the popular inspirational blueprint for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is set to guide this rapidly growing movement to the next stage of its development. The authors provide very practical examples and information that will be of service to growers and shareholders alike without losing sight of the heart and excitement that makes CSA central to the renewal of agriculture.

Added to the material from the original edition are two new essays by Trauger Groh dealing with the economic, legal and spiritual questions surrounding the CSA movement, and the role of domestic animals on CSA farms, while Steven McFadden contributes several new pieces on the context and scope of community farms. New profiles of five farms are included, and the farm "biographies" from the 1990 first edition are reprinted and updated with reports on their present situations and lessons learned during the intervening years.

Expanded appendices provide suggestions for starting CSA farms, look at the issues surrounding the acquisition and holding of land, illustrate sample farm prospects and budgets, and offer lengthy lists of resources and suggestions for additional reading.

Review:

Whole Earth Review on Farms of Tomorrow:
"This is the best book to access the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement, including philosophical, spiritual, practical essays and how-to (including financial discussions). This is the source for tools, organizations, farms, and networks concerning the renewal of agriculture."

Resurgence Magazine on Farms of Tomorrow"It is rare to come across any practical farming guide that sets out, from its inception, a set of principles that embrace social, spiritual and economic concerns on completely equal terms...The wisdom and clarity of philosophy are striking throughout."
