I am so excited about the Growing local Movement across our country.
The opportunity to purchase locally grown produce, homemade goods, and crafts, appeals to me and many others seeking alternatives outside of the BIG Chain Markets...
" Yes the Big Chain Markets have their place, "where else are we going to buy paper plates and Microwave dinner's".. But it's high time that we have the option to purchase from other sources when we want a healthier diet!... Here are just a few reasons why growing local is a Good Thing!
1). Food grown in our own regions taste better! ..Why? because It's not shipped across the country to get to your plate!
2). It Supports the local Farmers and Artisans who often offer some very unique things that are crafted by hand.
3). Cuts down on pollution! All that travel across land and states adds to more carbon emissions, thus polluting our air and our environment!
4). Locally grown foods build our communities, by giving us a closer connection and bond with the Farmers and Artisans serving our communities. We get to meet new people, make friends, eat healthier and learn a few things along the way.
