Corinna Bench – CSA Membership Academy
Do you ever open up your CSA box and pull out a leafy thing like this and wonder ==> “What the heck am I supposed to do with this?”
PS: That’s bok choy.
Yeah I know what you’re thinking you THOUGHT this CSA thing was a good idea when you signed up but now that you’re deep into it, you’re starting to feel overwhelmed, aren’t you?
(Are you throwing things down the garbage disposal?)
“I hate that I’m wasting all this food!!” ==> yes, I’ve been there.
And while we’re talking food waste, would you know what to do with these?
Somebody help me!!
I remember what it felt like when I first started getting my CSA box: I felt excited at first, then slowly overwhelmed by all the produce I didn’t know what to do with, then guilty that I wasn’t using it.

Then one day I decided to interview my CSA members who were REALLY good at CSA.
You know the ones who are freezing fools, canning ninjas and sheetpan meal foodies.
In fact, I talked to over 30 of them on the phone for over an hour, and I took furious notes.
And I started to see patterns.
I took all their wisdom, and started to apply it to my own kitchen and CSA experience.
And it worked.
I was so excited that I started to train my rookie CSA members with my CSA master’s secrets.
It took me two years.
I made video trainings for every veggie, template cheatsheets for cooking, storage guides, canning guides, an instant Pot course, exit strategies for vegetables, even a quick “Beginner’s Guide to CSA Membership”
Things like this started to happen to my CSA members and their kids
Now I have a CSA tribe that is kicking butt and taking names.
Thanks to our coaching and community support, we are taking CSA rookies and turning them into near-CSA-masters in just 2 seasons.
I want this transformation to happen for you too.
So I took all those training resources and put them into THIS online training library.
I call it the CSA Membership Academy.
And it is your full-proof source for getting better at eating MORE locally-grown seasonal veggies.
No more veggie overwhelm.
Sayonara, food waste.
Good-bye, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese as your default setting.
Hello to healthy guilt-free cooking, mentorship, and INSPIRATION. (And impressing your family with dinner).
If you are looking for someone to guide you through the maze of CSA membership, we can help.

So this is fennel
Would you know what to do with it?
Don’t feel bad. I didn’t know either until 2016.
That’s when I discovered you can freeze the stalks, and throw them into pasta sauce — and they are an AMAZING flavor booster.
What about this?
That’s a leaf from a Brussels Sprout plant. (Yeah, I was clueless too.)
And yes you can actually eat these.
They fall into a lovely category known as “random greens” — like broccoli greens, kohlrabi leaves, bok choy, Swiss chard, and kale.
You know what I make with them?
We call them “Frozen Green Cubes,” and they have taken our foodie tribe by storm.
Blanch the greens (til they wilt), puree, freeze into muffin tins, and toss later into spaghetti sauce, soups, chili.
And no one will ever taste them.
It’s stuff like this that you learn in the Academy.
I know what it’s like to be in a CSA your first year. It’s OVERWHELMING!
I so wish that I had a guide to show me the ropes and teach me the “most important things” that would get me over the hump those first 2 years.
That’s what the CSA Academy is designed to do.
When you join the CSA Academy you get unlimited access to:
Our Comprehensive “Veggie U” module — a library of video tutorials and ebooks for every vegetable we grow (over 40+ sessions). Each ebook has a collection of recipes to help you with that veggie.
Cooking tutorials for common “exit strategies” — pesto, our famous frozen “green cubes,” chilis, frittata, smoothies, sauces, and more. You’ll learn the basic formulas for just about every category of meal.
Cooking cheatsheets, PDFs, and checklists you can download and print out that make things easy to follow — like “Formula for Refrigerator Pickles” or “Best Beginner Instant Pot Recipes”
Freezer Meals and preservation tips
Vegetable Storage Guides – my “A to Z Storage Guide” and “The Ultimate Guide to Freezing Vegetables” is KILLER good! I consider it the first thing you should learn as a CSA member.
Instant Pot Mini Course — in under 40 minutes, you’ll know the top 5 techniques you need to know to get started with this tool. No more overwhelm. No more fear.
Canning Club workshops. Watch the step by step process for preserving popular staples like tomatoes, pickles, beans, and jams in this popular video module.
The Beginner’s Guide to CSA Success course — our step by step mini-course for CSA Newbies to help them speed up the learning curve to CSA Mastery in under 90 minutes. Don’t make common CSA rookie mistakes.

Here’s the deal:
Farmer Kurt and I learned a few years back that it isn’t enough to just grow vegetables for you.
We need to teach you how to eat them.
(Otherwise, you’ll just keep composting those carrot tops.)
The stuff in the Academy is going to BLOW YOUR MIND
I know. Because I was once a Chicago suburban-girl who couldn’t even steam a head of broccoli.
Then I married a farmer and learned about how real food was supposed to taste.
It changed my life.
My first 2 years of marriage were filled with “a-ha” foodie moments on the farm.
That’s why I made the Academy — to help other people like me discover the amazing things you can do with vegetables.
