Child-Run CSA to Deliver Organic Produce this Summer


If you haven't signed up for a produce CSA for this summer and are becoming dismayed by their high prices and limited selection, a new option is hitting the markets: The PlayGreend, a new CSA run 100% by children. Working in shifts revolving around school recess, afternoon and morning preschool and kindergarten, and school breaks, kids ages 4 to 12 learn on-the-job training in the organic farming industry, from growing to harvesting.
