local food

This group supports locally grown, fresh, sustainable food that promotes local economies, living wage jobs, and more benign environmental practices. In the era of "peak oil", global warming, rising food prices worldwide, and domestic food security—it may be time to think local, and buy local, too.

Most folks are very aware of their local Farmers Market. Are there other ways you've discovered local food and how to get it? I like to go to the U-pick farms. I get it fresh, skip the middle person, and support my favorite farms this way. How about you?

winterfield

I'm Winterfield and I live in Chicago. I'm an urban gardener and my wife is a cook. I feel sort of... weird being the only one here for now but I expect that will change soon. Thank you for the invitation. I have two large raised areas in my yard. One is for flowers and the other is the Kitchen Garden. This year I'm practicing square foot gardening (without chemicals) and have been pleased with the results so far. My wife and I are Polish and have a running joke about my "collective." My wife is the cook and she makes good use of the fruits of our collective. Again, for the tenth year in a row I was allowed to stay on the farm another year. (whew!) I hope everyone's summer garden and kitchen is productive and delicious. So, has anyone tried something new lately?
