Shop Local

Do you have a black thumb? Support other local gardeners and farmers!

  • Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) consists of purchasing a share of a farm’s output for the year. You may be able to pick up your share at a local drop-off point, or they may even deliver directly to you!
  • Local farmer’s markets are still open.
  • Look for local products in stores and when shopping online.
  • Support restaurants that use local products.

Composting

Another way to keep our environment healthy is to recycle nutrients back into the ecosystem rather than sending yard and kitchen waste to the dump. Creating a compost heap at home is a cheap and efficient way to improve your soil and reduce waste.
