Thought provoking debate yesterday about "Building CSA networks", Organic World Congress(जैविक कृषि विश्व कुम्भ) with experience -based contributions by Elizabeth Henderson, from the US, Shi Yan, from China, Frédéric Thériault from Équiterre, Canada, Gopi from India, Jan Valeška from the Czech Republic. 3 farmers on the panel!

The debate was articulated around the following main question: "what can a network do that an individual CSA group cannot?" We talked about CSA farmer mentorship/advising programmes, promoting the concept of CSA to a wider audience, educating the CSA groups on CSA, advocating, and social inclusion mechanisms.

Many challenging questions from the audience too!

Next Urgenci workshop is scheduled on the 11th of November at 10.45 AM in Alvaro Castro Hall. The topic will be "PGS (Participatory Guarantee System) meets CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)". Welcome!
