In today’s New York Times, Mark Bittman has written a piece called “Some Good News about Food.” Bittman has decided to take a break from being a cranky activist (which I admit I love) and outline all the positive things that have come about because of the current interest in fresh, local, organic food.
While Bittman acknowledges the relatively small role fresh, local food still plays nationally, he nevertheless sees it as an important development, one that could bring much-needed zip to the environmental movement.
I hope he is right. I also want to add that although my contribution as a blogger is small, I am proud to be a part of this movement. And, readers, you are part of this movement as well, and I hope you will take the opportunity to give yourselves a little pat on the back.
