  • Subscribe to a CSA (for Community Supported Agriculture), and a local farm will prepare a box of fresh fruits and vegetables for you. How convenient is that? Just swing by a pick-up location after work, or arrange for direct home delivery. See for a CSA near you. Also, be sure to check out their national list of restaurants, Stores, and farmers markets carrying locally grown food.
  • Take a sneak-peek at what its like eating locally by visiting and reading Plenty: One Man, One Woman, and a Raucous Year of Eating
