Serious gardening has started! For the past three years I have worked at a CSA. CSA stands for community supported agriculture and it’s very popular in our area of Wisconsin.
Most of the CSAs are organic and produce non-GMO vegetables. I am a firm believer of the benefits of organic farming. The way a CSA works is that you pay or work for your share of what the farm produces. Payments are usually made at the beginning of the season. Farms usually give their workers either a discount or the entire share for free.
I work two days a week and do a variety of tasks such as planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, weeding, and harvesting. It’s hard work but lots of fun and it feels great to work with the land. At the particular farm where I work, I get my share of organic veggies for free!
