List your CSA with the Irish Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Network
The common ground definition of CSA or Community Supported Agriculture, available in the "Overview of CSA in Europe" report written in 2015 is:
"CSA is a direct partnership between a group of consumers and one or several producers whereby the risks, responsibilities and rewards of farming activities are shared, through long-term formal or informal shared agreement. Generally operating on a small scale, CSAs aim at providing quality food produced in an agroecological way".
This questionnaire is taken from the 'Overview of CSA in Europe' report.
