America's disassociation with its food maybe one of our biggest cultural crimes. A majority of children and adults go through their day without any real clue of the effort and resources it takes for thier food to reach their plate. Additionally many people make decisions regarding their food that damages not only their health but the health of our planet. Many of us may have heard the term locally grown or locavore in the past year or two, but what do these terms really mean and how can they help not only us but our planet?
Well these and other questions like them will be taken up this year by The Friends of Ryerson Woods and their Year of Locally Grown. They will explore these ideas through a varitey of media.
Go to their website and see how they can help you to better understand these ideas. http://www.ryersonwoods.org/p/YearOfLocallyGrown.html#YOLGevents
Finally, Sun! And flowers.
