Community Supported Agriculture is a great way to ensure a supply of farm-fresh produce throughout the growing season. You purchase shares from a local farm, and every week you visit a designated drop-off point to pick up your dividends — a box full of vegetables, and perhaps fresh eggs and bread.

On Saturday March 31, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington will be hosting the second annual Long Island CSA fair. About 20  farms will be represented, giving you the opportunity to compare them side by side and to sign up on the spot. Already confirmed are Quail Hill Farm of Amagansett, Fox Hollow Farm of South Huntington, Green Thumb Farm of Water Mill, Sofia Garden of Amityville and Crossroads Farm at Grossman's in Malverne.

Also present to lend a sustainable hand will be Edible East End, Healthy Planet, Slow Food Huntington and the Weston A. Price Foundation.

Cinema Arts will offer free screenings of “The Real Dirt on Farmer John” at 10:15 and “Farming The Future: Farm Life on LI” at 11.45.

Cinema Arts Centre is at 423 Park Ave., Huntington. For more info: call 585-271-1979,
or visit www.nofany.org/csafair.
