Join a CSA, visit the Farmers Market or Plant Your Own!
Few decisions affect our health as much as our food choices.
Erin Barnett, Director at Local Harvest explains: "We hear the same story over and over again: people join a CSA, start shopping at the farmers market, or plant a garden because it seems like the right thing to do, but more often than not the rationality of "good reasons" quickly gives way to pleasure. They go back to the market week after week (expand the garden, re-up for the CSA) because in some little or big way they've fallen in love with the sumptuous pleasures of food at its best."
If you are trying to eat and live healthier and are not sure where to start, LocalHarvest.org is a great place to go. They maintain a "living" public nationwide directory of small farms, farmers markets, and other local food sources. Use their website to find local, organic and sustainably grown food in your area ~ farms as small as an acre. They also have a catalog for things you can't find locally!
Local Harvest was formed in 1998 in Santa Cruz, California by a software engineer and activist, named Guillermo Payet, who was dedicated to generating positive social change through the Internet.
