"Eating is an agricultural act" ~ Wendell Berry
Last week I mentioned that the average American meal travels 1500 miles. Although that can be a somewhat depressing fact, the good news is that we have the power to make a difference every time we eat! I love this quote because it reminds me to think about where my food came from. It seems simple, but if you walk into any grocery store and walk down the aisles filled with colorful boxes, packages, and shiny fruits and vegetables, it is easy to forget what it takes to produce the food that nourishes us.
When you buy from a local (and organic!) farmer, it is certainly an agricultural statement. You are supporting an agricultural system that is increasingly rare, but vital to the health of our community. Thank you for supporting Fresh Green as we strive to grow fresh and healthy food for Klamath Falls!
