I have to admit I was surprised and also impressed to read this article in the local free weekly, (my last issue) the Leominster Champion about Mayor Dean Mazzarella of Leominster engaging in locavorism experiment. I even emailed him suggestions as he asks for in the article. It might be easier to eat locally in Leominster, MA if folks like the Mayor favored economic policies that encouraged sustainable living instead of moving in more box stores in what once used to be farm land and apple orchards, but I am quibbling. Good for him for going this far with what he is doing, and I encourage him to further explore it. More Sholan Farms, less Lowe’s and Home Depot. Can you get locally grown apples in Texas?
