Look over this list and find the foods you frequently consume. Try to purchase these items at your local farmers markets and ask if the farmer is an organic farmer. Also you can look at your “Buy Fresh Buy Local” guide to find farms in the area that you can go visit and build a relationship with your farmer. Can you join a CSA? Can you pick your own produce?

How about starting a garden at home? You can contact your local “Master Gardeners” group for help.

  • Stay tuned for our next blog on the “Clean 15”.
