Organic or Local? Know your food!
Buying your organic produce at a local farmers market supports local growers and reduces the amount of fuel used to transport the produce from somewhere else.
Buy organic when you can, but even local conventional can be good. Know your growers and ask them questions about their growing practices. Pay attention to labels on the food at your local grocery market.
Buy fresh not drive-up! Start a backyard garden – if you don’t have the space or live in an apartment, try container gardening or join a local community garden – watch your food and your health grow!
