Co-creating value in local food networks through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Info about the Project

In Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), members of a local community invest upfront in local farms before a harvesting season in return for "shares" of weekly produce. This promotes agricultural & economic prosperity for the farmers & a sense of civic community. Today, CSAs have evolved to reach broader customer groups and often lack a sense of community. Through a user-centered approach, we learned that farmers need better platforms to support CSAs while customers need more information transparency to streamline their CSA journey. We designed a CSA portal to build a stronger CSA ecosystem.
