There are no CSAs in my area. :(

I'll think about it in 3 years when I move back to the states but living in Japan right now sort of puts a damper on most of my plans.

we have participated in CSA for many years. Wonderful opportunity to try new veggiesand recipes, and be able to help local, organic farms survive.

I live for the start of the CSA season! Our family has subscribed to a CSA in Massachusetts for 2 years now. It has really expanded our culinary experiences and helped us to eat more vegetables. I love supporting local agriculture and getting the freshest produce available. I only wish the season was longer. This year we're planning to try out a meat CSA as well!

I was a member of a local CSA and got some friends to join as well. Best thing for our family-tried some new veggies that I never would have..they had a weekly newsletter with recipies for the new to us items
which was GREAT! Lots of work, lots of food. We can share shares with others and for small families
that worked-they just alternated weeks.
This year I am growing my own garden...so fingers crossed for a good growing year!

We joined a CSA last year but found that they had too many things we didn't eat and not enough of the things we did eat. So this year we're just going to shop at the local farmer's markets.

I watched Food, Inc. and then, for the first time, bought a CSA share to a wonderful, fully-organic, local farm. I'm expecting to use my "EatingWell In Season" cookbook frequently, and hoping to make some drastic, much needed changes in my diet.

I have been a member of a CSA for 12 years. I love the variety. I have tried many different vegetables that I otherwise would not have chosen at the grocery store.

CSA's are a great thing? The abundance of food is the only obstacle for a family of 2. Your forced to prepare or store the food each week, it becomes laborious. My solution is buying local at farmers markets, I will be contributing to the local farmer while getting delicious and nutritious food. Its a win-win situation.
