Local Food is in the Vicinity

Local food and sustainable agriculture tend to be discussed together in a same context. However, they are different in a number of ways. Local food is, in essence, about physical distance between producers & consumers while sustainability is a broader concept and often cares about the natural environment as well as animal welfare and economical viability.

Food is one of the most fundamental, complicated and controversial issues; therefore, let's make it simple in order to avoid unnecessary misleading. If you ask me, I'm happy to begin with 'distance'. The closer the fresher & tastier most of the time. It's that simple.

Of course, I hope to work on other food & environmental issues too in the future. But, so far, this is a good starting point for me to tackle them. We want to enjoy tastier vegetable & fruits with righteousness and less hassle, don't we?
