Quebec

Equiterre, a non profit organization located in Montreal at 2177 Masson Street, Suite 206, 514.522.2000, has information, easily accessed, on the community supported agriculture network in Quebec, representing over 100 participating csa farms, with over 8,500 participating households [http://www.equiterre.org/en].

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a growing movement in the United States and Canada, which has provided economic support and predictability to farmers, practicing traditional family farming, that they will be able to continue to farm, and that communities will be able to enjoy fresh, local farm products.  Partnering with local farms by purchasing a “share” in the season’s harvest, consumers can know where their food is coming from and have the satisfaction of supporting local agriculture.  Participants, who purchase their shares early in the season, provide the farmer with a stable income, and in return they receive a weekly supply of fresh local farm products.
