Agribusiness And The Grassroots Food Movement

When I lived in NYC I was a member of a food swap group. The mission of the group was "To build community by sharing and trading homemade foods, recipes and tips." It involved bringing your homemade pickles or cookies or whatever you made and swapping it for someone else's homemade goodies. One of the people who runs it, Meg Paska, now runs a small farm.

Wheels For Health

Want to know what's in season? Interested in seeing what foods you can look forward to next month at your local farmer's market? A local foods wheel is an attractive addition to your kitchen that can answer these questions.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be one for every region, but perhaps some commenters can point me to more.
