We think field to table, or garden to table, eating is the way to go. Along with the Safer® Brand crew, there is a group of people who whole-heartedly agree with us. Meet the Locavore. According to Merriam-Webster a Locavore is “one who eats foods grown locally whenever possible.” We came across this great infographic and are excited to share information regarding Locavorism with you!
The Locavore movement began in San Francisco in 2005 and consists of two classes of Locavores. The Ultra Locavore is able to grow an abundance of food in their own backyard and generally only eats foods grown within 100 feet of their home. The Common Locavore consumes a majority of food locally grown and sold at farmer’s markets and community supported agriculture programs. Their food is usually grown within 100 miles from their residence.
Gardening organically is our passion and being able to eat the fruits of our labor is such a great lifestyle. We find more and more people are embracing Locavorism, and we are proud to support it. Check out more facts by viewing the graphic below, and hang out with us on Facebook. We’d love to hear how you are eating locally!
