The Waihuena Farm “Book Club” is one way for our CSA members and greater community to connect with the farm and the organically grown food that nurtures us. Join us as we research and discuss our weekly organic farming topics. You can simply go through the weekly resources below, or join us in our “work by doing” discussions at our weekly Volunteer Wednesdays or Monday CSA and potlucks. Learning is a collaborative process- if you have any organic farming resources to share, email:

Every Wednesday, weʻll be covering an organic farming practice and sharing a podcast or other learning resource. Volunteer garden projects focus on our permaculture zones outside of our main garden arena).
