An article on community-supported agriculture (CSA), by which a farmer sells weekly subscriptions or shares in his or her garden to local customers. Russell Libby, executive director of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, estimates that some 4,000 Maine households own CSA shares and another 6,000 elderly receive smaller shares through the federally funded Senior Share program.

For many farmers, CSA has meant the difference between success and failure. With details on several of the participating farms.
