Teach your little chickadees how to eat healthy, live eco-consciously and reduce your family’s carbon footprint by buying a “share” in a local farm. From fruits and veggies to eggs and flowers, you can have it all––organic, locally-grown and farm-fresh to boot–– by ordering a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box. Read on for 10 CSAs from San Diego farms that we think are the cream of the crop!
