Outside the box

Your share in little flower farm costs $500 dollars. That's for 18 weeks of fresh local (aren't they synonyms?) chemical-free vegetables during the growing season. How can we put that in perspective?
If you make $52,000 a year that's a whole season's worth of veggies for just a couple of days of work. I know what you are thinking! WOAH NELLY! THAT IS SO WORTH IT! SIGN ME UP!
If you make $30,000 a year it's more like four day's worth of work for a season's worth of vegetables. Still a great deal.
And here's why:
When you sign up for a CSA share you are signing up for more than just good food for your family. You are supporting a sustainable farmer in your area. You are supporting local jobs, sustainable agriculture, family life, health of wildlife, land and water conservation, and also, National security. There's alot more in your CSA share than what fits in the box!
