Get to know your local farmers
We are so far removed from what we eat these days. We lack basic knowledge about how our food is grown, when foods are in season, and what foods grow best in our area.
These are all things that you can learn from your area’s local farmers. Knowing your farmers allows you to learn about, and connect with, the natural rhythm of the earth. They can be a wonderful gateway to your natural world.
And it’s quite easy to get to know the people who produce the food you eat. You can chat up the farmers at the local farmers market and ask them about what they do, sign up for a local CSA, arrange to get meat, milk and eggs delivered from a local farm, or ask to get a tour of a local farm to see how they do what they do.
