CSA History: Then and Now

The roots of the CSA model were influenced in part by Dr. Booker T. Whatley of Tuskegee University in Alabama. He was a 20th-century pioneer in sustainable agriculture. Dr. Whatley promoted “smaller and smarter” farming through what he called “Clientele Membership Clubs.” Today, the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is teaching the students at The Piney Woods School ecologically sound production practices following organic agricultural standards, and is teaching profitability through the CSA marketing model. We are proud to follow in Dr. Booker T. Whatley’s footsteps.
