Good article and straight to the point! I liked it!
Have you heard of the new Arizona company called Chow Locally? They're making it really easy to get tasty, fresh local food from a bunch of local farmers by shopping an online farmer's market and picking up your order at a nearby location. I think the website is just http://www.chowlocally.com. It's better than a CSA, because you can choose exactly what you want! They say they plan to go national. There's even a place to request them in your city.
Great job and thanks for the link to LocalHarvest.org. Just found out where a farmers market is right down the street from my place. Sweet.
Today I have hunger. This is good. I will be going to eat something for lunch today, though I am not sure what as of yet.
Oops. Wrong thread. Bound to happen at some point I suppose.
This viewpoint sometimes fails to realize that some foods that are produce far away are done so because even with energy and money for shipment, it's more efficient to grow food sin some areas. Geography dictates a lot of crop management.
