Whether a current CSA farmer or planning a new CSA farm business, farmers are invited to attend a webinar to learn about potential legal risks of running a CSA and strategies for crafting a CSA member agreement to improve customer satisfaction and retention. This webinar will also discuss how to create meaningful volunteer opportunities with worker share or volunteer agreements, while also identifying potential legal risks. We will discuss setting up a CSA business, hiring interns and apprentices, and overall risk management strategies to build a CSA that can thrive.
