#ygkChallenge: Community Supported Agriculture

CSA, Community Supported AgricultureWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Buy into Community Supported Agriculture! Love the idea of eating fresh, locally grown produce but you don’t have time or a knack for gardening? Then perhaps you should consider buying full or partial shares in a local CSA. This will guarantee you a bountiful harvest of local produce, and treats such as eggs and meat. Some CSAs ask you to pick up your shares from a convenient location, while there are others who offer deliver right to your doorstep. How easy is that! Support local agriculture, enjoy all the flavours of the growing season, and make your mom proud by eating your veggies.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.
