A few months ago I looked into a MD program called "Maryland's Best," where you link up with a local farmer to get a share of their harvest. I wonder if CO has anything like that. I will have to try some dandelion root :)

Nice job Jeff! You had me engaged all the way through, and I hope there's more coming. Have wondered often what it would take to go truly local. Great screen presence and super polished production.

Forrest -

If you'd like to find out if there are any CSAs (i.e. community-supported agriculture farms)in your area, you can consult this website (copy/paste the URL below into your browser). It's a gold mine for those seeking the resources to eat locally. We've been members of a CSA in Oregon for the last 6 years and we never eat better than when our weekly shares are being delivered. If you've heard about the drought in California, it should give you all the incentive you need to start supporting local alternatives to corporate agriculture and the 3000 mile Caesar salad.

Jeff,
This is really well produced and a message delivered that I think is can be heard by anyone. I too have been trying become more of a locavore. I have been looking more into CSA programs - community supported agriculture. You should check it out - it's a really great thing to be a part of. Inspiring video!

You better stick around, Jeff! We'll make a locavore of you yet.
By the way, nice butter!

First, I see you in the Paonia community production of GREASE, (and where I read in the program you are soon going to walk across the country picking up trash) then I see this fabulous little piece on eating locally, which is so very good. Hooray, you, and to HCN for having a multi-media intern!
Very nice video.

Hi! I'm a senior at CWRU, and for a senior project I'm researching local eating in Cleveland. I'm going around scoping out where you can get local food, and am making about three meals a week for the whole summer. Your video was entertaining and well-made, I really enjoyed it! Except now my adviser saw it and wants me to make a video too. Thanks a lot, haha!

good video! I did rewind to hear how the hens were doing. I thought of a Hemingway book...("Men without Women," was it?)
