eat local

About two years ago, I took a class at Stanford about organic farming methods. The class met once a week for several hours at the Stanford community farm and we grew food! It was incredibly awesome. Anyway, I started to get an appreciation for eating local, seasonal produce. However, I needed to learn what grew when in northern California. My fiance found the above food wheel that was custom for the bay area. Over the past couple of years I have loved looking at it (I have it hanging on the wall of my cube at work). I can now sort of tell you when things are in season (always a work in progress). With our CSA, it is also getting easier.

You can buy a food wheel on this website. They even make one for New York now. They also make a really fun gift.
