AMAP Les Pavillons - French style CSA

Welcome to AMAP Les Pavillons Friday evening food distribution in Toulouse! For what I could interpret, this mimics our Community Supported Agriculture system. AMAP Les Pavillons has 25 member who pay 20 euro per week for a basket of organic food. This week had fresh goat cheese, bread (baked on-site), peas, squash, lettuce, potatoes, beets, and raspberries. Their farmer grows on 5 hectares of land, and distributes about 150 food baskets weekly to several locations. This three-year old membership conducted a meeting prior to the food distribution to increase membership to help support their farmer.
