Over the last decades many thousands of people in all parts of the world have come to recognize in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) a vehicle for approaching land, food, labor, environment and community in a healthier way. Now – in an era with increasing shadows of environmental catastrophe – it’s time to expand exponentially the CSA vision and reality.
The opportunity is before us to establish hundreds of thousands of CSA farms in nations around the world, and to thereby employ a proven, egalitarian model to address the radically changing circumstances in our environment, climate, economics, and social relationships.
By way of background: as a journalist author Steven McFadden has been writing about CSA since its inception in the USA in the late 1980s. With Trauger Groh, he is co-author of the first books on CSA: Farms of Tomorrow and Farms of Tomorrow Revisited. His other books include The Call of the Land, Profiles in Wisdom, Classical Considerations, and the epic nonfiction saga of contemporary America, Odyssey of the 8th Fire.
Awakening Community Intelligence sets out the vision and sounds is a call to action.
