With warm weather arriving, I am thinking about summer and the delicious
foods that come along with it. Foods that I used to take for granted,
though, I have recently begun to reconsider after watching a few films
and doing some reading about the food industry, factory farms, sustainable
agriculture and what it means to "keep it local."
A great place to start if you're interested in learning more about
these issues is with the Academy Award nominated documentary film,
FOOD, Inc. Another resource that might help you act on your newly discovered food
Buy Fresh Buy Local, a website that lists farms, farmers markets and businesses that emphasize
locally produced foods throughout NEPA.
Among the businesses listed is Journey's End, an organic family farm
and maple syrup operation in Wayne County that offers the public opportunities
to engage in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) by purchasing a weekly
share of the farm's produce. When you join a CSA, you get much more
than food; you get a relationship with the people who worked to produce
it, a sense of the land from which it came, new friends, and a chance
to make a positive difference in your community.
The local food movement is all about thinking through the consequences
of our actions and taking responsibility for our choices. In some ways,
my work as a Wayne County personal injury lawyer deals with similar issues.
Many people do not think before they act, and some people act in ways
that overtly harm others. When someone else's irresponsibility causes
you injury, you need to speak with a reputable Wayne County personal injury attorney.
