Local Food Movement, Articles from Coast to Coast

This Washington Post article features 3 women who ride their bicycles from Washington, D.C. to Montreal to document thriving small farms, community gardens, and the growth of urban agriculture.
In Washington state, people struggle to find a way to bring self-sufficiency to low income populations.
We love local food for its taste, for supporting the local economy, and for its benefits to the environment. How about how great it is for our health? I hate to get wrapped up in all the little details of nutrition, but it is definitely a perk to eating a variety of fresh produce. I came across this article from the American Institute of Cancer Research, and thought it might be useful in getting ideas on incorporating more unprocessed foods in our diet.
