CSA: Consumers can buy shares to support local farms like Anne Cure’s Cure Organic Farm. In return, they receive weekly boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables. Such arrangements connect consumers with the people who grow their food while strengthening local food systems. Photo taken in Boulder, Colo.

Update: Learn with us as we expand the CSA model from local farms to other small food businesses with the crowdfunding model of “edible credits,” called Credibles. Our online seminar for entrepreneurs and investors alike is here: Credibles webinar.
