Local Food

CSA (Community Shared Agriculture)is a system for consumers to arrange with farmers to get a box of locally grown organic food each week. The consumers pay at the beginning of the growing season. If a crop fails, the consumer bears the risk and simply goes without. This costs more than imported food. Imported food is cheaper because it uses pesticides and low cost labour. Governments sell it cheaply to raise cash, while their own people go hungry.
