"Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you
believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take
responsibility for making it so. If you assume there is no hope, you
guarantee there will be no hope."
- Noam Chomsky

eat local...

here's a great article by the ever talented Jeff Nield of FarmFolk/CityFolk - click the link for the full article.

Over the past couple of years, the concept of eating locally has taken hold of the public imagination. Thanks to years of on the ground work by a group of dedicated non-profits, activists, farmers, small businesses, and eaters, the benefits of eating food grown as close to home as possible has at least made it to the edge of mainstream society. Buying locally grown food is a positive choice for the environment, the economy, personal health, and our communities. Not to mention that learning where your food comes from is empowering information that will lead to a greater understanding of the food system in general.
