Sustainable Food Leaders Recognized by NRDC

  • Posted by SHFT on April 28, 2011 in Food
  • We are in the midst of a food revolution. Urban farms are popping up all over the place. Wal-Mart is buying local, sustainable produce. Even the White House growing its own vegetables. Organic is the new conventional.

    This week, our friends at NRDC announced the winners of their 2011 Growing Green Awards, recognizing the incredible work being done to transform the future of our food system. The winners were extraordinary people doing extraordinary things in the realms of sustainable berries, biopesticides, school salad bars, and local farming.

    But the real winner is you, the consumer calling for fresh food that supports local producers and doesn't screw over the environment. Keep on keeping on!
