That's good info.

I don't have it in front of me, but there's also something about how spending food dollars on locally-grown food has over 200% effect on stimulating the local economy.

I wish there was locally grown food...where I live they literally farm lawns.  Grass farms.  Hundreds of acres of lawns around where I live on what is otherwise perfectly good farmland, replete with irrigation canals.

More proof that people are fucking crazy.

There are local food growers here.  There's farmers' markets four days a week, and one is up near you guys.


There's the lawn thing too, of course, but there is also the farmrrs' markets.
