What is the origin of Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture grew out of the biodynamic farm tradition that began in Europe in the 1920’s. In community supported agriculture, people become members of a local farm – a linking of producer and consumer by mutual interests that is one of the major concepts of Dr. Rudoph Steiner (1861-1925), the Austrian philosopher whose ideas inspired the biodynamic farming movement. CSAs in the U.S. started in the mid-eighties, a decade after they became popular in Japan and Chile.
