Eat your (CSA) veg­eta­bles

Milwaukee Health - - PERSPECTIVE -

Com­mu­nity-sup­ported agri­cul­ture (CSA) mem­ber­ship sup­ports lo­cal, small-scale, sus­tain­able farm­ing. Lo­cally grown, fresh pro­duce re­tains more nu­tri­ents, and reg­u­lar de­liv­er­ies of a wide va­ri­ety of in-sea­son veg­eta­bles in­crease the odds that you’ll ac­tu­ally eat them. Log onto the Ur­ban Ecol­ogy Cen­ter’s web­site for a chart com­par­ing 16 area CSA farms, and if you want to get some ex­er­cise as well, sign up for a worker share to swap la­bor for food.
