The Importance of Living Locally

I’m writing over at the Simple | Green | Frugal Co-op today – please join me there!  Here’s an excerpt:

As the economy ebbs and flows – but mostly ebbs – many economists, politicians, bankers, and people like you and I are taking a step back to figure out not only how to survive this economic downturn, but also how to prevent being hit so hard in the future. There is a lot of talk about Wall Street versus Main Street, and where our stimulus money to should go, where our concentration of effort should lie. …

This post includes The Benefits Of Supporting A Local Economy and The Importance Of Living Locally, two subjects that are right up our alley here at One Green Generation.  I hope you’ll join me over at the co-op today!

  • That’s what i love about Costa rica, you can’t help but live locally. Especially when it comes to fruits and vegetables. The weekly, dirt cheap farmer markets make living local so wonderful!

  • Our farmer’s market is ten miles away — so I went out to the front “yarden” and dug sunchokes and picked kale and leeks instead … and ina few days, a friend will give me potted-up quince trees and I’ll give him potted-up elephant garlic and runner bean seeds.

    We all have our little ways … ;)
