Step 2 of the Global Walkout
If you missed my post last week on the Global Walkout, read all about it here:
Step 2 of the Global Walkout is to support local farmers and growers. By spending your cash (yes, keep Step 1 going by paying cash whenever possible) at family-owned grocery stores, fruit and vegetable shops and farmers markets, and even buying direct from farmers and growers, you can boost your local economy, keep family farmers and growers in business, and help your local communities and small businesses continue to thrive. And you’ll be getting fresher produce for your family in the process. Everybody wins… except Big Ag :).
You can find tips for locating and supporting local farmers and growers, and small businesses that sell their produce, here.
And if you haven’t already, sign up to the Global Walkout here.
Globalism is the disease, and localism is the cure!
