FACSAP WEBSITE UPDATE: Check out the newest upload to the 'What is CSA?' section of the website. From the first three pages of the introduction to the book titled Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm's Practical Guide to Liberation of the Land by educator / farmer /mother / food justice activist Leah Penniman, we learn about Dr. Booker T. Whatley and his many contributions to sustainable farming in the early part of the 20th century, including the concept of subscription buyer's club for small farmers—what we now call CSA. An article online at Mother Earth News  that briefly discusses this topic of forgotten history, is included in the link on the website, along with a note about Dr. Whatley.
