This country needs to do more to support local, organic farmers. This has been a mantra of mine at Natural Healthcare Center, on my By Design radio show, during my Wellness at Work seminars, and here on my blog. Maybe somebody in Washington heard my plea.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that it has awarded $52 million in grants to support the growing organic farming industry and local and regional food systems, all of which are largely driven by local farmers and farmers markets.
Why is this happening? Because you demanded it.
