However, you don't necessarily have to pay a lot more for healthy organic food. Offset packaging and transportation costs by buying goods from your local farmer's market or CSA program. Visit a farm and pick your own. Or start a garden, either in your yard if you have one, or in containers if you don't. You'll be supporting the local food movement, helping the environment, being kind to your wallet, and doing your health a favor. Check out our Winter Food Project webpage and CT Farms and Food webpage to learn more about farms, markets, and CSA programs in your area all year round.
