over a week ago, ryan and i went to a local farm to help out a bit and see where food comes from. we had planned to do a more in-depth post on food and sustainability and wedellberryesque type stuff but time marched on and before you know it we have never written anything.
so here is a short post...
in short: we believe there is something sacred about reclaiming a respect and knowledge about where our food comes from. it is our hope that we can get to know a farmer, eat the food he helps create, participate in the miracle oursleves, and somehow enter deeper into grace and gratitude.
in practice: we are growing our own food in our backyards and in urban gardens. we are investing in (buying shares - see link) and getting to know our local farmers.
you can find out more about ways to connect with your local farmers here.
