Doniphan CSA practices sustainable agriculture. Since there are many different definitions of agricultural practices we define sustainable agriculture as; A long term view toward improving soil texture, fertility and moisture holding capacity for plant growth.
Towards this goal we use raised beds for moisture retention, manure for long term fertilizer and texture and chemical fertilizers to make up shortcomings in quality and quantity of manure. We use pesticides as needed, not as preventive measures.
The outdoor planting area for 2008 will be 81 each 100 foot long and 2 foot wide raised beds. Of these rows 11 will be planted in Asparagus, 4 in fruit trees, 1 in Rhubarb, 1 in Horseradish, 1 in Blackberries, 1 in Raspberries, and 9 will be replanted in Strawberries all of which are perennials.
