CISA logo for resources Off-Farm CSA Manual
Between 2005 and 2008, CISA’s Workplace CSA program worked with seven workplaces and nine farms to start up off-farm CSA distributions. This manual is designed to impart some of the key lessons we’ve learned over the years and to help other non-profits, farmers, and workplaces replicate the project. If you have any questions, contact Claire Morenon, Communications Manager, at 413-665-7100, ext 16.
