“Think globally, act locally.”Wendell Berry
These words hung on the walls of the Farmers’ Diner in Barre, back when I was in high school.
It’s been over a decade since the Farmers’ Diner closed, but those words — think globally, act locally — are as important as ever.
Between climate change, the pandemic, and the war in Ukraine, enormous pressures have fractured the global food system. So enormous that it can feel paralyzing.
But there’s power in our actions, and that power sprouts up when we act locally.
Local organic farming is part of the climate solution. Local food systems create resilient solutions to food access.
For a quick look into how local organic farms make a difference, take a look at this video, produced by NOFA-VT:
When you sign up for a CSA, you’ll get a season’s worth of organic vegetables, herbs, and free PYO flowers — and you’ll also support local climate solutions that feed into the global issues of food security and climate change.
Acting locally means making local food accessible to everyone.
Subsidized CSA shares are available now.
But don’t wait. NOFA-VT Farm Share Program applications close in April.
Check here for details on how to get a CSA share for half-off.
Thanks for supporting local farms, for being part of the wide and varied solutions to a resilient food system, and for thinking globally and acting locally.
