Community Supported Agriculture

There is an interesting concept around called community supported agriculture. The way Lance Estevez works it is for around $20 per week (price could vary next year), he delivers to your house, organic produce from his farm. He tries to get at least 3 people in each locale so he can justify fuel costs.

So far he is covering only the Waldorf, Accokeek, Oxon Hill area. He grows the usual vegetables and also provides eggs. He has more business than he wants, but has agreed to include us for next year if we can find a couple of neighbors to include. Lance has a bad back and is limited in his activities.

I intend to ask him to include a season-long supply of fresh basil. That will be popular for sure.
