just curious if anyone has used a community based farmer for this in the gta. Mark Ruhlman has been blogging about his and thought it might be a good idea.
Any help would be appriciated
I've been having a great experience this year with Matchbox Gardens, which I pick up at Trinity Bellwoods. Great quality and variety, super friendly and enthusiastic. Money very well spent.
My sister and I also split a share of a meat CSA from Twin Creeks Farms, which was also great. Really excellent quality.
The only bad CSA experience I've had so far was with a meat CSA from wholeearth farmstudio last year. Very poorly run. Unreliable delivery dates that changed with no warning and very little follow-up communication. And I'm not sure if I ever did get everything I paid for. It was all very higgeldy-piggeldy. Nice product, though. Just not worth the immense hassle.

It's not quite a CSA, but you might be interested in the Good Food Box from FoodShare. Less of a commitment than a CSA. Local focus, but not exclusively local (so you will get bananas alongside your kale).
