To the Editor,
Why eat local food?
Not just because it tastes better and is healthier, but because knowing your farmers and food producers is good for your soul. Because knowing where your food comes from helps you understand your connection to your community, your bio-region, your Earth. Strolling of the Heifers was founded to help farmers. Our parade and weekend, our farm tours, and our Slow Living Summit create a space for farmers to promote their connection to the community and to our lives.
