Pikes Peak Urban Gardens
Our mission is to cultivate community through organic gardening
and sustainable urban farm projects in the Pikes Peak region.
Community Supported Agriculture is a system by which eaters are more involved with food growers. Notice I didn't say suppliers, the intent is for you to be closer to the source of your daily bread. It's an awesome feeling to actually know the farmer who grows your food.
CSAs come in several forms, the closest connection you can have with your farmer/rancher is to buy a share in their operation. You get a percentage of the harvest but also share in the risk of things like frosts and hail.
