Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a great way to know where your food comes from and learn all about it. If we are what we eat, then we need to eat healthy, organic food that we know how was raised. If local prices scare you, as you heard Kye Kocher in the video, “Start a garden – empower yourself’. Food can be the greatest form of wellbeing, or the slowest form of poison depending on what you eat. Growing your own garden is the best way to know your food is doing you good and is a source of nourishment.
If you can’t grow your own garden then go to your local farmers market every week to purchase your food, even if you only make one purchase. There the farmers take as much care as you do in making sure that the food is as healthy as it can be, and as they are the people who grow it, they will be able to tell you exactly what’s in it!
Buying local is the best way to make sure that our local farmers continue to produce food that has the smallest ecological footprint. If you want to be a part of it, contact Grand Trunk Veggies and see how you can help. Join the CSA, buy local produce, or volunteer your land for crops – everything you do will help.
