Today I read an interesting article over at Nutrition Research Center.org that made a good point. If you go to the garden center Home Depot and browse the pesticide aisle, you will find warnings on the labels about the dangers to your health. But, when you go to the grocery store and buy produce that has been sprayed with all these same pesticides, there is no warning. Interesting….
Anyway, it is important for us to be careful about the produce we are consuming. We are excited to have a local CSA that shops at our local farms for us and delivers a box of a variety of organically grown each week. We know what practices our local farmers are using and it makes us feel good about feeding our family healthy pesticide free produce. Find a local CSA in your area and support your local farmers.
