Summary

Norway covers an abundant wilderness, only three % of the land are cultivated. The last ten years the eagerness to form and join Community supported Agriculture, CSA, has boomed. The initiative is supported by NGOs and authorities. A literature survey shows what makes the Norwegian experience special and what is common with other urban efforts. The survey focuses on sustainability in household and lifestyle. Hypothesis was that organic agriculture is a way for sustainability and furthermore a goal set by authorities and peoples organizations. Most important conclusions where that CSA indeed makes a step forward to sustainability even though some questions and conflicts of interests may appear.
