We visited Community Roots today, described as “Community Supported Agriculture 🌱 Nature Friendly market garden. Food and friendships within our community” and it was all those things and more.
We expected just to be shown around to to see what was going on but it turned out to be the day for putting up a new poly tunnel and it seemed that extra hands would be useful so we stayed and helped. What a wonderful sense of satisfaction and camaraderie.
It was the day for harvesting the onions and some volunteers, aged from 3 to 75, were laying them all out to dry off in the sun.

We joined a CSA in Maryland before moving to Florida. Then we joined one here (just a short bike ride away) that we loved . . . until the lead farmer headed to law school. The CSA began to flounder after his departure and it has since folded. Your post reminds me that I should look for another.

I’m not sure what CSA stands for but it sounds much like our community garden. I’m sorry it folded and hope you can find another. Ours is inspirational. 🙂

It’s a wonderful project. So much food being grown where there were just rough fields only 18 months ago, all organic and feeding so many people. 🙂

Is anyone documenting it? (like for a tv story?)

Interesting idea. I don’t know and will find out. I do know a time lapse video was made of the poly tunnel going up. 😊

Make for a marvellous TV special. Inspire others, and remind them what is actually important in life.

I shall tell the gang what you say. Thank you. 🙂

This sounds great, what a lot of onions.

They’ll be going in the veg boxes each week for some time. All grown from seed too! 🙂
