Community Supported Art (CSA)

May 13, 2017

I Am an advocate for local food and farming.  For years now I have supplemented my rockstar income with different organic farming jobs.  All the farms I’ve worked for use a model called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).  The basic idea is that you as a consumer of farm grown food pay a farmer before the season begins.  In exchange for your money you receive a box of vegetables (or fruit, coffee, meat, eggs…) once a week for the entire growing season.  You are sharing the risk of a successful crop that season with the farmer and become a partner (member) of the farm.  If locust come and eat all the asparagus, you don’t get asparagus in the box.  If there is an abundance of strawberries, you get a belly full and a packed freezer.  

 

I am proposing a new model called Community Supported Art (CSA).  The idea is the same.  We share the risk and excitement of creating my new album together and when it’s done you get a signed copy.  You will nurture this seed and watch it grow into something amazing!

 

There is no guarantee that we will make our goal.  There is no guarantee in anything.   I Am on the train to California and taking the risk.  The train tracks have melted behind me and I will owe the money whether I reach my crowd-funding goal or not.  Hop on board with me.  Let’s go on a journey together.  

 “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours”  -Henry David Thoreau

PS: This is not The Voice.  I Am not The Packers.  This is real Life and I need your help.  Helping others accomplish their dreams is the best way to realize your own aspirations.
