Milwaukee Makes Organic Produce Accessible & Affordable

Those of us lucky enough to live near farms can take part in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, but Milwaukee has brought this organic produce phenomenon to the city with a rooftop CSA.

Milwaukee residents can now purchase $800 shares of the rooftop CSA's harvest for 2009. Each week, they'll get a box of produce, the contents of which will vary as the seasons progress. If this sounds like a hefty sum, make a mental note of what the produce you ate from April to November in 2008 cost. Best of all, by nature a CSA is all-organic.

The Milwaukee rooftop CSA is located at the Community Building and Restoration building on N. Palmer St. I had the pleasure of taking part in a CSA last year in my town, and it's an experience I plan to repeat as long as I am able. Stats for Rooftop CSAs Trending: Older & Mild
