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

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:

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.
