Congregation Shaarey Zedek Hazorim CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)
*Registration to participate in the CSA is required by September 1.
What is a CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a partnership between suburban residents and a local farmer that allows suburb dwellers to enjoy fresh produce straight from the farm. When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a local farmer. From November until the end of April, Brines Farm in Dexter, MI will deliver that share of produce to Congregation Shaarey Zedek on Friday evening. The CSZ Hazorim CSA will bring healthy local food to our neighborhood, support organic and sustainable agriculture and build community. We have respect for the cycles, blessings and benefits of naturally grown food and honor ourselves, our farmers, and our farm workers. We will to contribute to the fight against hunger by donating our extra food to those in need. We hope that connecting to the land will teach us that joyful and communal eating is a part of healthy living and growing.
