Sustain member the CSA Network are a cooperative membership organisation that brings together community supported agriculture to promote a fairer, more transparent model of food production.

The funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation means they can continue their successful activities to raise awareness of community supported agriculture amongst the public and policy makers, and to support and advise new and existing CSA farms across the country. They will also be re-launching their mentoring programme which will now cover the whole of the UK. They will also be recruiting more board members and a new funding officer in the near future.

Sustain campaigns for food and farming policy which benefits the environment, health, animals and farmers.
