Meet local farmers and learn more about CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs in the High Country. Joining a CSA gives you with a weekly box of fresh, locally grown produce, meats, flowers, or other local products—and provides the farmer with valuable financial support at the start of the season. The High Country CSA Fair, which is FREE and open to the public, is an opportunity to talk directly with farmers set up at tables (like at a farmers market), get tips on how to cook with a CSA, and listen to short talks about the impact of local food on health, sustainability, and the environment. This is a friendly setting where you can come just to learn more or go ahead and purchase a CSA membership. The event is presented by ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project), BRWIA (Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture), and the Beaver College of Health Sciences at Appalachian State University. Visit asapconnections.org/events/csa-fair for event information and for a list of participating farms.
