Put your "dibs" on Locally Grown

If you aren't fortunate enough to have a garden of your own, now is the time to hunt down your local organic gardeners. By buying locally, you can save the earth the burden of trucks shipping your food across the country.

At a local food meeting last night, there was a lecturer who shared his story of advertising on Craigslist that he was willing to take excess vegetables off of the hands of local growers. True. By the end of the growing season last year, my husband and I hoped to never see another zucchini again! We gave so much away, even our friends were hiding from us.

Now is a good time to put your "dibs" on that excess. Not only will you be saving good quality FREE food, but possibly saving the environment from one cross-country truck.
