Solidarity-based agriculture is an economic form in which consumers and producers join forces. The cultivation planning is adapted to the consumers and the production costs are calculated. These are divided by the number of subscribers (consumers) and represent the “true” price for the harvest, including labour, rental costs, seeds and everything else that goes with it. The subscribers receive the entire harvest and thus also bear the risk in a bad “vegetable year”. This relieves the producers and ensures fair wages and working conditions. In addition, a relationship to food that has often been lost is re-established, which also prevents food waste.
