On the cover: A father and son examine the harvest in the pick-your-own fields of Simple Gifts Farm CSA in Amherst, Massachusetts USA. The community supported agriculture (CSA) operation began in 2006 when neighbors formed a land trust called North Amherst Community Farm and saved the historic family farm from development. The easily accessible 30-acre (12-ha) community-owned farm now welcomes the public and is within 2 miles (3.2 km) of the town center and 10,000 residents. See The Branding of Community Supported Agriculture: Collective Myths and Opportunities soon to be published in this issue. (Photo by Ted A. White; used with permission)
