As the Community Supported Agriculture movement grows and becomes more structured with an increased number of CSA networks, CSA mentorship programmes are also multiplying. There are two major reasons for this. On the one hand, as the years pass, more experience is available from both the producers’ and from the consumers’ sides. On the other hand, with the on-going growth of CSA partnerships, there are also more newcomers joining the movement. They are in need of thorough guidance in their first steps in this unchartered territory. Mentoring is therefore becoming one of the major activities a CSA network can provide to support the sound development of these partnerships.
