Local Ag Is Getting More Popular

There is growing support for local, small time farmers/homesteaders and according to Alan Nation's blog, and Forbes magazine, it will keep getting better.  Below is an excerpt from Alan's article.  You can read the full text by using the link above.  I can attest that more and more people are getting concerned about the food they eat, and rightly so.  Just remember, eating this good, wholesome, local food seems to have become a priveledge and we now have to fight to keep that right.  The right to eat what we want.

"A group of futurist experts and authors convened by the politically conservative business magazine Forbes have predicted that by 2018, only eight years from now, 20 percent of the food eaten in major urban areas of the USA will be grown adjacent to or in the city itself."

local is the "greenest" you can get. It's unbelieveable the fuel wasted hauling things across the country. Of course the best is to grow your own stuff. I'd like to get back to that.
