After 20 years, PCSA has folded. Thank you to our farmers, members, and volunteers. It was a great run.

Started by members of Common Ground Food Cooperative, Prairieland Community Supported Agriculture linked consumers in Champaign and Urbana, Illinois, who were interested in buying locally produced pesticide-free food and the farmers who grow it from 1994 to 2015. PCSA's founders also co-created CSA-L, the first list-serve that allowed CSA farmers in the U.S. and around the world to exchange information and mentor those hoping to start CSAs. CSA-L was adopted by Local Harvest when Prairienet closed and has since morphed into the CSA Forum. We are proud of our history, the farmers we supported, and the food that they provided to our community, including lower-income households via our Sponsored Shares Program. Thanks to the members of PCSA and Common Ground Food Coop who supported this program through direct donations and CGFC's Round Up for Good Program.
