“Community Supported Agriculture” (CSA)

WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES GREEN GUERRILLAS OFFER YOU?

Simply put:
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a production and marketing model whereby consumers buy shares of a farm’s harvest in advance. Consumers become CSA members by paying an agreed amount at the beginning of the growing season, either in one lump sum or in installments.

Three roots of CSA

  1. Food sovereignty is the right for people to have access to healthy and culturally appropriate food, produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations.
  2. Organic farming is the traditional way of soil cultivation based on cooperation with natural laws and local natural conditions with the exclusion of artificial fertilizers and synthetic pesticides. Soil is perceived as a partner which has to be kept healthy and treated with care. If not treated properly, the soil cannot produce healthy food. This way of production helps to keep up biodiversity, respects the limits of the landscape, and aims for better animal welfare in agriculture.
  3. Solidarity Economy. People have always made their living through cooperation, which has been recently substituted by unleashed competition and it’s high time to resurrect the cooperative approach based on solidarity in building our food system. CSA is more than just another direct marketing scheme, the growers and the eaters, as they sometimes call themselves, work together to create local social/economic forms, based on trust.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM GREEN GUERRILLAS CSA PRODUCE?

Green Guerrillas is a progressive organic farm that focuses on waste stabilization of organic matter. It is a bio-integrated farm situated in the Western Cape. Using 27 years experience and guided by nature, this bio-complete farm delivers produce that is of highest quality with no use of pesticides or artificial fertilizers.

The egg produce you receive is guaranteed to be from free-range chickens and quail, that fed on a omnivore diet (no toxins or added hormones) and was cared for ethically and with empathy.

Our micro-greens, also known as aromatic greens or vegetable confetti, are rich in flavor and add a welcome splash of color to a variety of dishes. Despite their small size, they pack a nutritional punch, often containing higher nutrient levels than more mature vegetable greens. This makes them a very good addition to any diet. We grow ours with high quality soil that has no pesticides or chemicals in it.

For those that chooses our Premium Plus membership we add so much more. See below.
