Join a Food Co-op
Many communities have food co-ops or community-supported agriculture programs that you join for a fee and will save you a lot of money in the long run, Sara says. "It is like investing in a company, [except] you invest in a farm," she says. "So, in January or February you give around $400 to a farm, and many [other] people do too. The farm can buy the seeds, plants and the vegetables, and then by early June, you start getting a bag a week of vegetables, all the way up to right before Thanksgiving."
