CSA Cooking Class Highlights

Eat Your Carhartt's Out
CSA Cooking Class at 18 Reasons
November 5, 2014

We had a full house at the 18 Reasons teaching kitchen on 18th and Guerrero in San Francisco, earlier this month! Chris Hay of Say Hay Farms gave a dynamic presentation about all things farming: redefining skilled labor, rebuilding an electric tractor, where the heck Yolo county is, raising 600 chicks, and valuing our food!

Farm Commons Webinars

Upcoming Free Webinar on Tuesday, 12/9/14:

Put Your CSA on Strong Legal Footing: 


CSA is an incredibly unique relationship between farmer and customer. But, this means it also has unique legal dynamics. CSA farmers who critically analyze their membership agreement, drop sites, and farm event programs beforehand set themselves up for success. Learn how an attorney sees CSA and what you can do to protect your farm. This webinar will also discuss risks with farm volunteer programs and buying the right insurance.
