Supporting local organic farms and food producers is one of the most effective ways YOU
can reduce your own carbon footprint and live a little lighter on the planet.
Sustainable farming techniques + less food miles
= less carbon per meal = healthier planet.
In the warm Mid-Atlantic Summer months it’s easy to source local. There’s lots of farmers
markets, Summer CSAs, and local produce on the grocery shelves and the restaurant menus.
But what about eating local the other half of the year, in the Winter and Spring?
The Winter and Spring seasons are actually my favorite time to eat local – hearty soups,
flavorful salads, crisp apples, and succulent roasted root vegetables keep me warm all Winter.
Then with the first blush of spring comes strawberries, asparagus, and the first crisp field
greens as the outside world awakens yet again.
The Groundworks Farm CSA makes it easy to reduce your food miles year-round. Our
knowledgeable, friendly, and supportive pickup staff is always available to help you keep your
family dinners interesting. Pick up new recipes,storage tips, and talk cooking every-other
week with our supportive localvore staff and community so your kitchen can thrive all the way
through those cold Winter Months.
Eat local. Save the planet. Be healthy. Build community.
