Just another reason to buy local whenever possible ...

Just got back from vacation, and am now even more invigorated "go local." You might think it was because I spent a week on the lovely and rustic Orcas Island -- where there wasn't a stop light or chain store to be seen ... where we visited a fabulous sustainable farm where the WWOOF interns were a pre-med student from Oregon and a raw foods chef from the Twin Cities (that's Minnesota, for anyone who might think I miswrote Tri-Cities) ... where the hiking in the island's two state parks is fabulous and even friendly to even-mario-style-hopping-hiking 2-year-olds ... where the deer and seals and herons played around us in a way only an island with no predatory animals can. But no. Here's why.
