Hi all,

My DH and I have been seriously considering starting our own CSA.  We live in the south. in a city and there is def. space to be found so I think we could rent some space and slowly grow as we got a handle on things.

We do have experience growing.  Not a ton, but we have done our garden for awhile now and my husband has been in the green industry (ie landscaping/hardscaping) for about 10 years now.

We both have a passion for sustainability and food.

What I am looking for is some experience to hear of or even a lead on a mentor or sourts in getting something of this nature off the ground.....we have no CSA's here at al and would be getting in on the beginning of what I expect to be a growing trend in our area.

We did live in Colorado recently and were members of a CSA there and were def. participating in the whole slow food/local food thing going on there and want to see it start to grow where we are now.

 

Thanks for any insights, experience or leads on anything we should be looking at online or beyond :)
