Essential Resources

This section is designed to help you get the information and support you need to know what CSA achieves and what are its main guiding lines and also how to start up and develop further a CSA group. The information is designed for CSA groups and networks, farmers and members.

Moreover, this is just a start and we would like to collect and share the information more broadly.

>>> PLEASE HELP YOUR CSA FRIENDS OUT, and send to contact(at) the CSA material you use in your group or network. Thank you!

Reference documents

The interesting thing with the declaration is the collective writing-process, and you can find more about it here. One of our task when writing the Declaration consisted in collecting the main reference documents in Europe, here there are, most of them translated to English:


Reference Manuals

  • The European Handbook on CSA has been published as part of the Community Supported Agriculture for Europe project coordinated by Urgenci and conducted in 2011-2013 with 8 country partners. Our first collective work!
  • The “Be part of CSA!” Booklet is much more developed and aims at training CSA_to-be members to the basics of CSA community-building and wild adventure!
  • Share in the Harvest , An action manual for community supported agriculture produced by the Soil Association (UK) is our reference point.
  • The Resources webpage of the UK CSA Network
