Entrepreneurs for Sustainability (E4S) is presenting “Linking the Local Food Industry in Akron” at the Mustard Seed Market in Montrose on April 9th 5:30-8:30 pm.
Local food is so important to our health and the health of the planet. If you buy from a farmer, you can ask him/her how your food was grown. Many small farms grow organic food, but they don’t go through the process of becoming certified organic. The FDA’s rules are less and less strict about what can be put in food and still label it organic, so it’s nice to talk to the person who grows the food to find out how they grew it.
Local food also travels fewer miles, making it fresher, and generating less pollution.
Support local farmers and eat local food. You can learn more about Akron Local Food at the E4S event on April 9th.
Thanks to the Village Green for the head’s up!
