Happy Earth Day!
By now, you have probably heard the phrase: “Think Globally. Act Locally.” We think Earth Day comes at a great time of year to embrace this mantra, especially when it comes to the food we eat. This Earth Day, we want to encourage our readers to get excited about the upcoming abundance of local foods that will be cropping up soon.
It’s that time of year when Farmers Markets are kicking off their summer season, and we suggest that your “Earth Day Resolution” includes visiting these markets on a regular basis to get to know your local foods, try some new ones, and actually meet the farmers in your area.
What to go a step further? Sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and have your very own farmerís market delivered to your door (or available for pick-up). Search for one near you on LocalHarvest.org.
