To the Editor:
Local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farmers who are either certified organic or use organic practices are presenting "Local Food for Thought."
The program is going to be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17at the Deerfield Township Hall in North Branch; at 6 p.m. on Thursday March 26 at the Ruth Hughes Memorial Library in Inlay City; at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 2 at the Metamora Branch Library in Metamora and at 7:30 p.m. on Wed., April 8 at MCC Flint in the Genesee Room in the Prahl Center.
Many farmers and consumers find that our current food distribution system disconnects them from the source of their food and consequently from the ability to know where and how their food was grown or raised. Unfortunately many name brand products in grocery stores are no longer even grown in this country. CSA is a method in which people can connect with local agriculture and see first hand how their food is grown or raised. Through CSA, consumers are guaranteed access to local, organic produce, dairy, eggs, grains and meat.
This free program will allow people to learn what CSA and a Cow Share Program is, how these programs work and it will also allow people to meet the several CSA and Cow Share farmers in Lapeer, Genesee and surrounding counties.
