Help Needed - Support a Farmer in Trouble

Recently, one of my colleagues who has CSA as part of her farm's make up, made some other farmers and I aware of a situation that she needs some support with.

Apparently, one of her former farm supporters paid her normal CSA installment to the farm, but then went out of town for several months and didn't pick up her food. This person now is requesting a cash refund for the unclaimed shares. Well, we all know that the food keeps growing, the expenses keep coming and this is not a co-op, but the supporting of a farmer and her land.

My friend has a court date - yes, the former member is asking for her money back legally - in May. If you are near Frisco and can come help show some support May 5th, please get in touch with me and let's help stand up with her and show the judge we support small farmers and what CSA really stands for. Community Supported Agriculture.
