What a great way to start this Tuesday–I love chatting with Rob & Lisa of the Southshore Morning News on WATD 95.9 FM every other Tuesday morning. But talking about food–especially local food–well that is just something I could go on about all day! However, on The Green Quick Fixes 5, there’s only time for 300 seconds.
Here are today’s segment highlights and five tips for Eating Local in the Southshore.
Eating local lowers carbon footprints, supports local economies, and there are many practicing organic and sustainable farming to buy from. For at least five months out of each year, farmers markets, a CSA share, and my garden supply most of what we need in my household.
