What’s the big deal about eating local food? Why bother? Is it so bad to go to the supermarket instead of the farmer’s market, to buy frozen instead of fresh?
All this travelling food has a significant impact on the environment. In this age of climate change, carbon tax, and an increasing concern about human impact on the planet, it’s no wonder many of us are looking for ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint. Eating locally grown and produced food is not only a good way to do that, it’s quickly becoming essential to life on the planet. The less food has to travel, the less impact on the planet we have, both as individuals and collectively.
In this book you will learn all about how to use your local farmers' markets and other methods to eat locally in order to reduce strain on the environment and bring higher quality food to your kitchen.
