"If every U.S. citizen ate just one meal a week (any meal) composed of locally and organically raised meats and produce, we would reduce our country’s oil consumption by over 1.1 million barrels of oil every week. That’s not gallons, but barrels. Small changes in buying habits can make big differences. Becoming a less energy-dependent nation may just need to start with a good breakfast."

It's raining and cold so I am glad I held off on the rushing to plant the veggie garden BUT that hasn't stopped me thinking about the garden. I came across the quote above while researching another thought I had while thinking about the garden...How can we share the food we go? I have heard about urban farming networks but what I am talking about is sharing all that extra zucchini, tomatos, herbs that we all have when we grow our own food. I am looking into it and will report back with what I find but what a great way to help our community while helpinhg the planet.
