  • Reflection Question
    Food Buy From a Farmers Market
    What is one food choice that you make, or could make, that would do more good and less harm?

    Be more aware of packaging on the food I purchase.  Less plastic, not locally recyclable in particular, less plastic overall.  Especially veg/fruit loose instead of in packaging.
