A CSA with a connection to people--not just to your food
By: Daniel Bornstein (Feb 6, 2010)
Sophia Garden truly embodies the community value of the local food movement.
As part of my high school's research program, I wanted to conduct an agriculture study. Sophia Garden allowed me to use a portion of its land for my research, as long as I was willing to prepare the soil for seeding myself and leave the land in good condition for future farming.
My experiment at Sophia Garden really taught me how important local agriculture is: there is a connection between food and its consumers.
I truly felt part of the Sophia Garden community this fall when I presented my research project to its members at the farm's annual potluck luncheon. I had a chance to meet shareholders, and I explained how my research is applicable to international agriculture. My hope is that Sophia Garden considers the merits of intercropping in its future seasons.
My family will be joining Sophia Garden this year, in large part because of the tremendous support I felt in doing my research there.
At Sophia Garden, you will feel a connection not only to your food but also to a social community.
