For all of you with a peaking interest for locally grown foods and adopting a more conscientious approach to food consumption, I wanted to share a web site with a vast amount of relevant information:
Sustainable Table http://www.sustainabletable.org/home.php
I think I could spend an entire 8 hour work day rummaging around this diverse resource! It’s a great introduction to the who, what, where, when and how behind sustainable agriculture and the local foods movement. The issues are presented in an easy-to-understand language. I especially like the “What You Can Do” resource under the “Introduction” section which provides tangible and educational ideas for newbies looking to take action like myself. The “Eat Well Guide” link is especially useful l to find near-by restaurants, supermarkets, and farmers markets that support sustainability. There are tons of internal and external links that will give you hours of entertainment… both at work and at home.
