"All roads lead back to soil." — Chef Dan Barber
There is a wonderful Netflix movie called “The Biggest Little Farm” that depicts a regenerative, organic farm. Gave me a much deeper appreciation and understanding of the issues farmers face in growing our food. I grow both a pollinator and vegetable garden and encouraging the pollinators paid off this past summer with bumper crops of beans, tomatoes and carrots (despite the bunny that tried to burrow in the carrot patch!).
In California, there are two kinds of farmers markets. Look for the Ones that are certified. This means that all the produce is grown locally and if the farmer says it is Organic, it is.
Ron Finely, A.K.A. The Gangsta Gardener, has a popular TED talk. It explores his experience in bringing home grown food to an area that has more drive throughs than drive bys.
