BUY LOCAL Week – July 19-27
Local produce is in season now!
Make eating delicious, nutritious, fresh local fruits and vegetables a healthy habit. Why? Locally-grown foods retain more nutrients and allow you to choose produce without chemicals, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics.
Green areas that farms provide help to recharge our aquifers and cleanse the air. Buying from a local farm cuts down on the distance food travels, reducing carbon emissions and the consumption of oil.
