An Urban - Rural Network: Generating new forms of Exchange between CItizens fostering peer-based solidarity among Community-Supported Agriculture initiatives worldwide to actively contribute to the food sovereignty movement
A start-up vegetable CSA where each pays according to their own ability, and gets what they need.
Our CSA in already running, after several months of preparation (talks, meetings, work in groups, and celebrations). We are 23-25 families involved, with a Leading Group, a Farmer Supporting Group, a farmer employed, and a 2000m2 ground where the first little plants are already growing, in spite of the lack of rain this year. This initiative is part of a local Transition iniciative (Zarzalejo en Transizión), whose web is www.zarzalejoentransicion.blogspot.com
We are excited and maybe the second CSA in Zarzalejo is not far off.

The Just Food programme has lead the way in the USA connecting local farms with inner city communities through the creation of Community Supported Agriculture projects, food buying clubs, and farmers markets. Through inspiring video footage and photographs and an in depth interview with Abby Youngblood, The Soil Association has captured the amazing story of a group of people that is turning food deserts into islands of sustainability.
