Grist series on Food & Farming
Grist is currently running a series - Sow What? - on food and farming. Here's an interview with Michael Pollan on his follow-up book to The Omnivore's Dilemma. From here, you can find the other entries in the series.
"CSA" stands for "community supported agriculture". Members of the community pay at the start of the season for a share of the produce of a local farm. In our case, the season runs for 20 weeks, and most members come to the farm itself to pick up their share each week.
