Earth Day is Monday April 22nd!

Celebrate by going local!

Who better to represent a day dedicated to “a worldwide movement to protect our planet, our children, and our future” than our local farmers. Every day, their work creates and supports healthy soils and land, preservation of land, drastically less food miles from farm to plate, genetic diversity of our food supply, a more sustainable food system, and stronger communities. Every day, they grow the food that gives us access to healthier lives and choices aligned with our values.

So, for this Earth Day — Monday April 22 — and every day, we say, THANK YOU FARMERS!

The best way to say thanks? Support your farmers by shopping local all season long: go to farmers markets, get a CSA share, shop at retail farm markets, eat out at farm to table restaurants, and more! Discover your favorite spots with our Local Food Finder.
