CSA's, or Community Supported Agriculture, are a unique way to connect consumers to farmers. Learn about starting, organizing, managing, and marketing a CSA as well as deciding what type of a CSA will work best for your farm business. Adrienne Ploss, owner of Hickory Hurst farm, a fourth-generation family farm that produces USDA Certified organic cut flowers, herbs, and produce, will be this workshop’s instructor and will incorporate her own experiences with running her farm’s CSA. She has more than 25 years of experience as a horticulturist, as well as a Master’s Degree from Purdue University and a Bachelor’s Degree from Cornell University.
