What's a CSA?

All across America since the 1980's, Community Suppported Agriculture farms have been sprouting up.  Shoppers go direct to the farmer and purchase a box or basket of veggies, fruits, herbs, etc., for a set price every week or so.  Whatever is in season is what you get.  This is Shawn Shimokawa on her farm, Sulfur Mountain CSA, in Upper Ojai.  She was hard at work when I visited.  Shaun left her corporate job and her tiny cubicle because she wanted to work the land, and she is and she's so much happier!
