ScanGREENS GODDESS MINI-CSA: Grow! CSA stands for Community-Supported Agriculture. The way it works is, people who want to support the production and the producers of local organic food pay for the food and costs of growing it in advance, to help producers afford the large initial costs of production, including seeds, soils amendments, water, mulch, infrastructure, packaging, transportation, utilities, and labor. Producers are then supported throughout the growing season with these funds, instead of recovering initial costs gradually through the season, at the point of sale. It takes a lot of dedicated work to grow good food, especially in the desert. Appreciate a farmer by supporting local food production and all its benefits: join a CSA in your community! Greens Goddess is a small-scale organic farm that can support up to 15 Mini-CSA members. Greens Goddess is not certified organic, but follows organic gardening practices, and will soon pursue Naturally Grown certification.
