What Is A CSA?

CSA stands for community supported agriculture. It’s a wonderful concept where the consumer and the farmer share both the risks and the rewards of fresh local food. As a Ready FL Farm CSA Member, you register & start to pay before the season begins to help us get the seeds and supplies so that we can start planting the upcoming season’s crops. Then, you share in the risk and reward of the season ahead. If nature blesses the season, your portion of the harvest is full of the bounty that we all share in. If nature is harsh, we all share in the diminished harvest.

Our particular CSA is of the subscription model. A subscription CSA does not require field time from the participants (but you are always welcome to help – and can often snack when helping).

Automatic Bell Siphon 101

This video provides a clear explanation and example of how an automatic bell siphon works for flooding and draining grow beds. The key to having healthy vegetables in your flood and drain bed, is having a good working siphoning system to ensure your plants get plenty of oxygen and moisture. This example uses clear PVC pipe and a clear grow bed to make it easy to see and understand the working components. Clear PVC is not needed or recommended in your aquaponics system as it will promote algae growth; it was used here just for demonstration purposes for this video.
