Tip of the Month

Buy From Local Growers

-- In this way you avoid buying food shipped over long distances or stored over long periods of time and there is accountability for the manner in which it was produced. It also provides tremendous support to the local farmers. Moreover, it can often mean lower prices, too! You can also grow your own chemical-free produce right in your own backyard, (or even in a container), which can be a fun family activity.
