Community Supported Agriculture or CSAs are a forum to support a local farmer directly by buying shares in the farm and sharing the produce grown with other shareholders.  Not only do you revieve the freshest of food direct from the farm, you can also feel good about providing a little security to the farming community.

Community Gardens are popping up all over the city whether it be on public or private land and are a great way to get your hands dirty and grow your own food.  http://www.cityfarmer.org links those with land (ie backyards) and those without land, but a desire to tend a garden.
