As a foodie, I look at all aspects of the food that comes into my kitchen and where it's sourced. I'm so excited about the "local food" movement! I love seeing kids and adults getting involved in supporting local as they learn more about food, gardening and their "neighbors" - local farmers.
A friend of mine is in charge of a volunteer "crop mob" that goes out for several hours on a weekend or several weekends to help farmer's in need. One recent recipient was a goat farmer (and cheesemaker!), whose husband was serving in Afghanistan. Another was a farmer that had triple bypass surgery and wasn't going to be able to farm this season. The Tidewater Crop Mob showed up and planted his winter crop with him overseeing.
To further her mission for The Super Local Food Project, she's created a website and is sharing her journey. thesuperlocalfoodproject
Encourage entrepreneurship, buy local, garden, spend time with friends and family, meet your neighbors... just some random thoughts.
