There will be a workshop on what a CSA is and how it works, as well as printed materials about the process. The public will then be given a chance to meet one on one with local CSA farmers servicing the Metro area.
Each Farmers will have a booth with photos of their farms, lists of the products they grow, how they grow and where they have their pick ups. There are several different CSA models in the Nashville area and this will give the public a chance to find the one that fits them and their families.

This is a great opportunity for Metro residents and those who work in Nashville and to meet and choose their own farmer for the upcoming growing season.
