A blog for Eugene Locavores

April 24, 2008 § 1 Comment

Why eat local?

1. Guaranteed better food — fresh, in season, no unripe food shipped across the country.
2. Support the local economy — and local farms in Oregon.
3. Help reduce reliance on fossil fuels (for shipping food around the world and fertilizing with petroleum-based products).
4. Eat healthy — organic plants have more antioxidants than conventionally raised plants that had to fight off pests without chemicals.

I’m no expert, just a guy with a backyard garden that’s read a bunch of Michael Pollan. But some likeminded folks and I are going to document our experience getting involved with our food chain.
