What is a CSA
CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a system that connects farmers directly with local customers, in turn strengthening our local farming community. In the CSA model, customers purchase a share of the farm’s produce or crops before the season begins and in exchange, they receive the freshest, most vibrant produce each month during designated pickups.
This model works because it not only helps the farmers get their growing season started, but it offers a significant return to customers who choose to support a local farm early in the season. As a part of our Fresh Herb CSA, for example, you can expect to receive more herbs than you’d get for the same price as a non-CSA member during our peak season, along with many other perks like a CSA member only Farm Tour, work parties on our farm, and a 20% discount on fresh herb purchases for the entire season!

Investing in a CSA is just one way to support our local farming economy. What are some other ways you choose to support #local

I mostly read and talk about great books in RVA, but I also make time for great local news articles and magazines. Richmond Magazine is a celebration of the things that make this city great: culture, music, festivals, outdoor spaces, architecture, history, art, and (of course) food.
I’m loving the “Essential Eats A to Z” feature in this month’s mag. I will be working my way through the alphabet, one delicious treat at a time.
(Plus there’s a tribute to that D’Angelo video. You know the one.)

When Tracy from @slack_aliceza reached out to me, I knew immediately that I wanted to be part this brand. @slack_aliceza is a women’s empowerment and upliftment blog and platform where you can find lifestyle and inspirational content and a range of topics including Fashion, Parenting, Finances, Careers, Health and Fitness. Not only that - but I will be sporting their athleisure clothing over the next few weeks. The clothes are proudly made in South Africa. @slack_aliceza supports an NPO (Hope City Giants). Their aim is to raise funds to support girls and women in the development of their careers, from the donations collected through this platform as well as from a portion of the funds gained from the sales of their clothing line. This is exactly what we need in our society today- to create a positive and safe space for our girls and women to thrive.
