Low Cost Solutions for CSA Management
Wednesday February 23, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
After a few seasons of testing out different online platforms to manage CSA members, Naomi decided to use a combination of free and low cost programs instead. Naomi now runs Manorun’s 200 member CSA with customized orders each week using do-it-yourself solutions learned from experience. This has allowed the farm to save money and build better relationships with CSA members. Join this session for a walk-through of the processes and to hear about the pros and cons of this DIY system.
