Dear Debra,

I am including a couple of things we can offer you.
        1) our resource list
        2) CSA ideals
        3)list of CSA farms in NJ

We will have a detailed list of all CSAs in North America by early summer
and you could order that in June.  Additionally, I will mail you a copy of
our bibliograpy.

Good luck,

Elizabeth Keen
