The Mid-Region Council of Governments' Agriculture Collaborative
has created a series of online maps
to serve as your guide for eating more local more often. The following maps are currently available online:
Where to Eat and Buy Locally Grown Foods
: This map includes farmers markets, CSA's, retails selling locally grown goods, and restaurants that cook with locally grown goods (at least seasonally).
Agri-tourism and Events
: This map includes wine festivals and tastings/tours of wineries, "you-pick" farms and farm tours, state and local fairs, matanzas, and other agriculture/local food events.
Grow it Yourself
: A listing of local resources, busineses and groups to help you grow your own food. You can't get more local than your own backyard!
Click on the links above to navigate through the current map listings and start eating more locally grown foods today. Be sure to check back often as new entries will be added to the maps, and additional map categories are also planned for the future.
We just launched these maps and would appreciate any feedback or suggestions you may have. We are also looking for new map entries as well as updates to current entries on the maps. Please contact KT LaBadie at (505) 724-3619 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions, changes, or additions for the maps.
