WI Bike Week Events
FairShare CSA Coalition – Commuter Station (Afternoon)
June 5 @ 3:00 pm – June 9 @ 5:30 pm
FairShare CSA Coalition is a non-profit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin and serving the Midwest region. At the Paterson St. station (our office headquarters) bikers can grab a snack, peruse FairShare swag, and register to attend Bike the Barns!
FairShare’s mission is to support and connect farmers and eaters through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). We envision a future where CSA is the backbone of a strong local food system and where all families have access to locally-produced, organic food from small-scale farms. One of the ways we promote and support this vision is through our annual Bike the Barns event, which benefits our Partner Shares Program, and involves many community members connecting with farms through a fun day of biking the landscape and eating delicious fresh food.
Our work includes helping consumers “Find a Farm” to support and become a member of, financial assistance for low-income households in purchasing CSA shares through the Partner Shares Program, farmer apprenticeship and labor training programs, a wide range of educational workshops and resources for farmers, and developing both the National CSA Innovation Network (CSA-IN) and the Midwest Vegetable Growers Network (MVEG).
