The benefits of eating locally.
There are far too many ways to be green for anyone to tell you how to do it. The only way is to understand the problems that we face so you can make intelligent decisions for yourself, be informative to your friends, and help promote and create the solutions that will truly allow this world to become sustainable.
Why is getting involved important?
Food is not only a trillion dollar industry in the United States with its own marketing, advertising, campaigns, lobbyists and political stances from the far left to the far right; food is also what we eat, what nourishes us, what sustains us. We literally could not live without it. At the same time, food can also be responsible for leaving us sick, diseased or even dead. It is vital that we as consumers and/or producers understand exactly how we get our food and where it is from. It is only through educating ourselves that we will be able to make food choices that will keep us healthy and ensure a food supply that will continue to feed generations to come. It is only through making informed decisions that we can influence the food industry to adopt sustainable, food safe practices. Here on this page, we hope to provide you with a starting point on what we can do to secure a sustainable future.

But the Dietary …
