Eating Local for Less

"Organic", "All Natural", "Cage Free": What's it all mean? We've heard the news about obesity epidemics, ecoli outbreaks, pesticide scares, and nutritionally bankrupt processed foods, but are these expensive new boutique products really the answer? In this class, you'll explore alternatives to the industrial food system: CSAs, farmer's markets, food co-ops, and more, where the focus is on delicious, healthy food grown by environmentally responsible methods. When was the last time you bit into a tomato that exploded on your tongue the way they did when you were a kid? Taste industrial foods alongside local, organic, permaculture alternatives. Discover how to find sources of great local food and how to make it cost less than what you buy at the grocery store!
