Community supported agriculture

 

Everyone has to nourish himself and decide where the FOOD that he eats comes from. With this decision, he also shares responsibility for how they are produced and what ecological footprint the consumption of his food leaves behind.

 

We run a small farm based on solidarity on our farm.

The members of our community purchase parts of the harvest for one year in order to enable regional, seasonal diversity - together we share the costs, the risk and the harvest. The courtyard is also a place for community and to exchange ideas.

 

How can the vegetables be prepared, what can be eaten from them?

The vegetables can be experienced from the seed that comes into the prepared soil, through growth, harvest and even biting into it.

You can smell how good it tastes when you bite into it. Cooking and eating bring rhythm and calm to life.

Feel with all your senses how the vegetables affect your organism.

 

What is a SoLaWi / CSA?

CSA ( Community Supported Agriculture ) or community-supported agriculture is a concept of regional supply through which farmers and consumers move closer together, find a new relationship to their food, learn to appreciate the real again. Aside from highly polished supermarket apples and industrialized mass-produced goods.

 

For us as farmers, SOLAWI means knowing again who we work for every day. We share the cost, risk and harvest with our members. Overproduction, long transport routes or non-transparent origins are no longer an issue for our members. At the same time, we can count on their support - crop failures are not directly threatening our existence, also because we do not specialize in large monocultures but consciously live diversity.

 

So we dared and built our answer to industrialized agriculture, because the fact is: small-scale, organic agriculture can feed the world. Industrialized agriculture cannot do that. Seen globally, most of the companies are still small-scale, local companies, only we in the western world believe that it has to be the way it is now. We risk losing our connection to our food and thus to ourselves.

 

How does it work?

Our members purchase portions of the crop - one supply for one person for one period. What is there can be distributed. We also share the risk. You can find more detailed information about your harvest share here.
