Community Supported Agriculture in the Greenbelt

As soon as spring arrives I eagerly await the increase in local food options. From asparagus and sweet peas to strawberries and blueberries – spring and summer in Ontario is a local food lover’s dream.

So how do you make sure you get the best of what the season has to offer? Get yourself CSA box subscription. And get it early!

CSAs or Community Supported Agriculture refers to a system whereby farms and farmers provide a regular selection of their fresh produce for members of the community (some farms even deliver them to your door step). These programs usually begin sometime in May and tend to end in December (some are produce a box all year long).

It’s a good idea to pre-register since most CSAs have limited spots available for the year! Choose a small box or family size one, most CSA’s offer plenty of options to choose from.
