Hi! My name is Karen and I am a board member of the CSA at La Vista in Godfrey, IL. We are in the unfortunate position of having no head farmer for the 2010 growing season. At the recommendation of another CSA, I am posting in attempt to spread the word about our CSA.
I hope this is an appropriate place to post this, if it is not, I apologize!
