Books to Inspire Going Local

 
 

It turns out that the best thing you can do for your own health, and for the vitality of your community, is just what our grandparents did: eat fresh food, grown locally, from producers that you know and trust. Daedalus has long been dedicated to this sort of sustainable agricultural community—including supporting and even managing farmers' markets—and we can recommend a number of books about the advantages of bringing fresh local produce to the table.
