there’s simple steps from the nrdc, where you can find farmer’s markets and seasonal produce in your backyard along with public transport routes. there’s you are where you eat – it seems to be more of a work in progress, gathering local farms, markets and csa’s. and don’t forget about local harvest (wow, that post was from december 1st!). and finally (and best of all), you should check out hyperlocavore and join a yardsharing community! plus liz is one of my favorite tweeters – follow her @hyperlocavore!
