It’s on! The battle to define and support /oppose the locavore movement was kicked off today. Stephen Budiansky in his piece for The New York Times, “Math Lessons for the Locavore” while noting that he was all for growing your own veggies, pointed out what he calls the “absurdities” of this trend. The gauntlet was picked up over at Grist by Ken Meter of the Crossroads Resource Center who argued that the locavore movement is crucial to fixing our broken food system. Now, you be the judge! And stay tuned, there is more to come!
