Before you celebrate Valentine's Day, show your love of the land — and those who work it. Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA for short, is a system for helping farmers sell direct to consumers: Customers buy a share of the farm's harvest in advance, when the farmer needs money most, and in return receive farm-raised goods later that year. To find out more about this growing agriculture movement, head to Boulder, where the Boulder County Farmers' Markets will host an informational CSA Fair at Chautauqua's Community House from to 5 to 7 p.m. today.
At the fair, which will feature thirteen local producers involved with community-supported agriculture programs, you'll learn about the benefits of having a CSA share and membership options for the 2015 season, involving everything from fruits and vegetables to meat, eggs, flowers, wine and even preserved local produce.
The first fifty guests will receive a half-dozen fresh eggs from Jodar Farms; Three Leaf Concepts will be providing the refreshments and snacks. For more information, visit boulderfarmers.org.
