Q: Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs in Beijing?

I used to do CSA all the time back in the states and I loved it. The produce tastes fresher and you know where it's coming from. Are there any similar programs in Beijing?

The closest thing that you might find to this are the vegetable gardens that are tended to in the gated communities across Beijing, or at least in those gated communities where they are allowed.  In certain gated communities, small, and I mean, parcels of land are allotted to the Neighborhood Associations for such purposes.  Each inhabitant then "claims" a mini-plot which is farmed one growing to the next.  Additionally, in semi-rural and untended areas, villagers will often claim unused parcels of land to raise vegetables, etc. etc.

A: Chinese are generally pretty tolerant friendly and accepting whatever
A:Chinese are generally pretty tolerant friendly and accepting whatever foreigners do.  I spent 15 years in China but I wouldn't say there are that many don'ts....Don't assume that many people speak English though and learn some Chinese. Don't speak much about politics unless you want to praise Chinese system.  -- Natalie363
