Environmentally Friendly Shopping and Eating

Environmentally Friendly Shopping and Eating

The greater Grand Rapids area offers some good options for local produce and participation in CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture):

The Hekman Library has many resources on the importance of ecologically responsible food systems, sustainable agriculture, and eating/shopping "local." Try subject headings "Family farms," "Local foods," and "Sustainable agriculture." Then limit those headings by geographical area, if you like. 

One author we heartily recommend on these topics is Wendell Berry. Sample some of his essays in the book Bringing it to the Table: on Farming and Food.
