Kansas City CSA Coalition Helps
Increased CSA Demand
Farmers, are you wondering how to get a successful CSA started? Eaters, do you wish there were more CSA’s available so you don’t have to be put on a waiting list to eat the freshest produce in town? In order to help meet the present and future demand for CSA’s in the Kansas City area, the Kansas City CSA Coalition was formed in 2007.
The CSA Coalition helps to facilitate more farmers in developing successful CSA programs and connect wannabe CSA customers with farmers. The KC Food Circle serves as an umbrella organization to this coalition.
We hope that you are inspired to join in our efforts. CSA’s provide many benefits to both local farmers and eaters, creating a strong connection between people and the source of their food. After all, Community is the first word in CSA.
The following information is provided on our website.
