From our hearts to yours

Here are a few tips from our heart to yours. 

Eat locally whenever possible

  • Read labels when you shop. The best option is local, organic produce; the next best choice is to buy local, period.
  • Talk to the produce manager where you shop. Tell them what you want and why.
  • Grow some of your own food. Growing vegetables at home eliminates some of the transport required to get food to your table, which is often many thousands of miles. It's possible to grow some great vegetables in even the smallest of spaces such as a balcony or patio space. Try growing herbs, potatoes, carrots and other veggies.
