      We have to begin to make a change in our industrialized food system.  This is a small but meaningful step.

      Shopping local not only saves resources that would have gone into transportation across the US but also avoids flying in food from overseas.

      Our local CSA, Farmer Daves, does a great job of providing great organic food.  Our cost for this CSA subscription is about similar to costs from regular grocery stores.  Plus the advantage of having tasty fresh vegetables can't be beat!

      After season Farmer Daves has a stand open to sell root vegetables. Eating root vegetables in winter is the best thing for your system.  It takes a bit more creativity to make the dishes just from root vegetables, but the taste is worth it.
