Try to eat locally produced fruit and vegetables this summer.
Eat seasonal produce from your local area farms, or your own urban garden. This supports agriculture, commerce in your city, and cuts down on your carbon footprint (less food transported from far away). Attend Farmer's Markets, or join a CSA plan (Community Supported Agrigulture). Use your garage as a CSA farm drop site for your neighborhood, inspiring your neighbors to sign up for a CSA membership too. Pick your own fruit from local u-pick farms. Take a local food challenge!! Preserve fruit/veggies for winter use. Tell your local big chain grocery store you want more locally produced, seasonal foods.
