Here at EcoVillage Ithaca we have a CSA organic farm ("WestHaven Farm")
that has been operating for 6 years. The farm is small (~4 acres), and is
run by one of the households of the first neighborhood. (EVI currently has
one cohousing neighborhood, the long range plan calls for 4-5
neighborhoods). The CSA membership includes both residents & other
Ithacans. Also, our Common House kitchen manager purchases lots of farm
produce directly. Please see our website for more info.
