The Recirculating Farms Coalition is a collaborative group of farmers, educators, non-profit organizations and many others committed to building local sources of healthy, accessible food. Through research, education and advocacy, we work together to support the development of eco-efficient farms that use clean recycled water as the basis to grow food. We believe these recirculating farms can create stable green jobs and supply sustainably-grown food – fruits, vegetables, herbs and humanely-raised seafood – in diverse communities nationwide, and someday, worldwide.

Five Great Reasons to Buy Local Food - http://www.seacoastlocal.org/node/107

Five Great Reasons to Buy Local FoodLocal food builds a stronger community: Deeper connections to the people and the land that grow our food are made when consumers, chefs, food service directors and business owners connect directly to the source of the food they eat.Local food supports local farms and fishing boats: Local purchasing allows those who farm and fish to keep more of the full retail value for their crops, allowing them to sustain their way of life.Local food supports responsible land development: When land is preserved for farms and pasture, we are preserving open space and providing an economic incentive to keep it open and undeveloped.Local produced food is fresher: Local produce can stay in the ground or on the tree longer, allowing for a higher nutrient content, and will travel a shorter distance from source to plate, preserving the taste and quality of the food.

Local food supports a strong local economy: One dollar spent at the farmers market supports four times the workers than one dollar spent at the supermarket.* We’re supporting local jobs held by people who care about the food they grow and how it’s treated.

Adapted from “Top 10 Reasons to Buy Food Locally” by Brenton Johnson and  ”The Local Food Economy in Two Charts” by Tom Philpott.
