“The average morsel of food sees more of America than the farmer who grows it…”
Let’s discuss your ideas for a local food system. Is it realistic? Can it be done?
Imagine for a moment, what would the US look like with a completely local food system – each state, each county taking care of its own food? There are no wrong answers here, spit out what come to mind first. What would you not see?
I think that we should plant all of our interstate medians with fruit trees. Think of all the wasted space alongside the highways? What if each mile marker was known for the fruit or vegetable it produced. “Mile marker 294 has the best apples. And 100 has the best peaches.”
What ideas do you have?
