CSA Hits the Bigtime

Found an article at MSNBC.com this evening (yep, when I get home from work, I just keep reading about food) on how to buy organic foods on a budget. While I thought that much of the advice in the article could certainly be useful, what particularly caught my eye was a reference to community supported agriculture.

I read the mainstream, food-related news on a very regular basis, and this is the first time I've ever seen CSA mentioned. Yet again, Vermont is ahead of the curve!!

And on the other hand...just saw this frightening article in the NYTimes, called Globalization in Every Loaf: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/16/business/worldbusiness/16food.html
Makes you wonder how much melamine and other industrial waste we've been eating in recent years in our processed foods. The pet food contamination became widely known only because feline kidneys are so sensitive, and so many cats died.

I bet Localvore participation this summer will skyrocket! CSAs, farmers' markets, and everything homegrown and organic--we should all give thanks for Vermont's local abundance. Have you hugged your favorite gardener or farmer today?

Scary! Thanks for posting that, Lisa.
