Why Gail Simmons went green and why you should too!

Join a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) project, which connects consumers to local farms by delivering fresh produce to your door on a weekly or monthly basis.

Have an organic or biodynamic wine party. Get friends together and taste-test the growing number of wines produced in earth-friendly ways. Remember: Vineyard owners and winemakers are farmers too!

Lastly, know that we can all be part of the solution. What has struck me most in this incredibly educational process is that to raise $1 million for Grow for Good requires not just the big donations, but a lot of little gifts too. It's the $10, $20, $50 and $100 gifts that will ultimately allow us to reach our goal. To that end, the local food movement requires commitment from people across the county, in many different forms. Read about it, spread the word, make a donation, and help us save America's farmland to ensure the food you eat goes directly from the farm to your table.
