More and more people are becoming interested in learning about local food and community supported farms and agriculture. Farmers' markets, and community gardens are on the rise and people are becoming more aware and interested in where their food is grown. Organic foods, grown without the use of pesticides, are much more common, and can be found in grocery stores and even some restaurants.

I am a chef that has been hired by National Association of the Deaf to cook meals at the camp (Camp Taloli) for approx. 90 mouths everyday for next six weeks this summer. I am from Austin, Texas and will be in the area during the camp session. The camp is located at Stayton, Oregon and my goal is to make our food service to be sustainable, healthy, fresh, recycle, food compost, and support local business. I have nothing against purveyors that are under large companies nationwide but I want to

Oregon seems to be very open to this type of mind set. I hope it worked out!

I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and I eat a raw vegan diet which consists of all fruits and vegetables and I would like to find a reliable source for all year round. I need to buy in bulk. Would this market be right for me?
Glen Colello answered:
08/03/2013

connecting with a local healt food store to get bulk cheaper is a possibility. Starting a small coop of a dozn people that would enjoy ordering in bulk and get it cheaper, will consist of some work to organize. Not sure that area of Mich. is hot bed for the raw food diet but keep having conversations and you never know. I had know idea that Connecticut would be the home of so many places to get raw food in 2005 when I started a meetup.com group raw food did not exsist.

Hi there, My friend and I are both 19. Our goal is to help others and see that our actions influence only feelings of utmost happiness. Our passion lies in sustainability, agriculture (Local food included), and social events. We've come up with a solution to put it all together in a project that will benefit our local communities as a whole. My question then for you is....are you ever approached by people who have funds and the wishes that they be used for an initiative similar to that of
Glen Colello answered:
08/03/2013

I have found a local investor here in CT that does support individual events or scholarship people to go to workshops and seminars. Putting it out there in your community by going to social events and sharing your story. Those that can and are willing to help will surface. Also an ad in a local "Natural Awakening" magazing may also help. Good Luck

Crystal asked:
01/08/2013
I am working on a Community Food Project for the town of Groton, MA.(College assignment at UMASS) The goal is to develop a feasibility study of a food project idea that would benefit my town and the community as a whole. I'm trying to figure out the best way to approach this. There are already numerous Farmer's Markets, CSA's and other local farms selling goods. My thought was to develop a community greenhouse but I'm having trouble finding out if one exists or not, and also if a community garde

Hi Crystal, Check with planning and zoning in your town, as a community greenhouse may have needed a permit to operate. Let me know if that works! Daphne

I'm trying to find out what vegetables will be available for the Winter crop. I'd like that before my husband decides which farm to choose. Thank you, Jane
Rhonda Schnacky answered:
11/03/2012

It depends on where you live. I live in northern Minnesota and winter crops here consist of carrots, onions, cabbage, potatoes, winter squash, parsnips and beets.

How do I get connected with my local community supported farm share? I would love to get this going in my neighborhood, but can't seem to find anything around. Spring Branch, TX
Analiese Paik answered:
10/23/2012

Abbie, try Local Harvest or Farmigo and see if they have any listings in your area. Good luck!

Harry asked:

Where is the Grassfed Beef?
Analiese Paik answered:
10/23/2012

Harry, where are you located? Typically local farmers' markets have a grass-fed meat vendor. Also check on Local Harvest for farm listings near you or ones that ship. Next I'd look for a local, artisan butcher. We have Saugatuck Craft Butchery in Westport, CT. Next try Mrs. Greens or Whole Foods.
