Local Harvest CSA Directory-  Here’s how it works: “a farmer offers a certain number of ‘shares’ to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share- known as a “membership” or a “subscription” and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.” (description taken from Healthy Eating Experts)
