CSA workshop planned for Cheyenne

A workshop for market gardeners, farmers, or people who like to grow vegetables on starting up a Community Supported Agriculture venture is planned for April 12 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. The concept is that a consumer purchases a “share” of the farm production, then, through the production season, gets a box of vegetables (and maybe other farm products) every week.

The workshop will introduce the concept and present ways to make it work in Wyoming. Insights from the 19 CSAs in Wyoming help form the basis for a new manual on CSA operation that will be available at the workshop. The workshop is organized by UW Extension and the Wyoming Department of Agriculture. The event is planned to start at 9am Friday, April 12, and go to 4:30, at the Laramie County Extension Office, 310 West 19th Street in Cheyenne, Wyo. Lunch will be provided. The workshop is free, but space is limited. To reserve a spot in the workshop, contact Catherine Wissner at (307) 633-4383 or cwissner@uwyo.edu.
