(NSA) Directory

NSAs utilize space in the city (usually front and back yards) to produce food, creating a multi-plot urban farm. The food is typically distributed through a share program. Members buy a share of the farm at the beginning of the season, then receive a weekly portion of what the farm produces during the harvest season.
