Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

The Grain CSA pilot project was developed by Brenda Bruns of Wildsight Creston and Matt Lowe of the Nelson Eco-society with three goals in mind:

  1. Food security
  2. Reducing the carbon footprint
  3. Fair trade for farmers

We believe that meeting these goals will lead to more healthy food grown locally.

Two hundred people bought shares in the pilot project and four Creston farmers grew wheat, oats, barley and kamut crops for the shareholders. The piot harvest is now complete, and shareholders have received from 70 to 100 lbs. of unmilled grain!
