WHAT IS A CSA?
Traditionally CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture." Over the years this subscription model has been adopted by artists, herbalists, and other types of makers. Subsciprtions freqently allow community members discounts and perks while giving the host an ability to plan ahead in a situation that may otherwise be challenging without upfront funds. In otherwords, the peice of mind to focus our time on providing an awesome experience for our members.
For this CSA, Wild Seed will be sharing foraged and homegrown herbs, fungi, tea, and value-added products at a discount. Along with educational information via videos, zines, and web content to assist you in your learning journey. Local boxes will contain fresh/dried plants and fungi as well as value-added items as they become available throughout the season.
This is an awesome opportunity for budding foragers, herbalists, and conesours. By supporting this CSA, you are an intergal part of a larger learning community. In addition to products, this CSA has an education/deep ecology focus. Best practices and mindfulness are the forfront of foraging and growing efforts.
