What if we put local farmers first, crafting our food based on seasonal ingredients and packing it with produce from nearby farms? How much better would our food taste? What if we thought of farmers as providing nourishment, not just selling commodities? And what if these farmers could sell 100% of their crops—no matter how “ugly”? A little more produce for consumers, a little less waste to the compost pile or—worse—landfill, and a little more money in their pocket. What if we viewed grocers and distributors as our partners in growing the local-food movement? What if we could provide #real food everywhere for everyone—food that is fresher and more nutritious? What if we used technology to enhance our growing practices so that we could grow more with less—less water, less distance, less fertilizer—and protect our communities?
