If you live in the East Bay Area of California, you can buy flowers (in addition to produce and nuts) through several CSAs. If you don’t know what a CSA is, we highly recommend you do a bit of research on these cooperative farming groups to find out how you can become part of a collective that brings locally sourced food and flowers into households on a regular basis.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it’s a structure for farming that allows community members to contribute monetarily to local farmers to help them grow their crops. In return for their investment, CSA participants become members of the farming group and they get first-hand, direct access to the farm’s harvested crops daily, weekly, or at times set by the CSA.
The East Bay’s Coyote Family Farm offers one of these CSA groups, and it’s a farm that gives area residents access to beautiful, just-cut flowers that are unmatched.
