Cause of the Day: American Farmland Trust

If you’re stuck at work and feel that you want to contribute something else, or more to the world you live in….

If you’ve just had a delicious bowl of homemade soup at lunch that your husband or wife made you last night…

If you’re already daydreaming about the next time you get to go to your CSA farm to pick some fresh vegetables…

…then maybe you would take  a minute to visit the American Farmland Trust website.

Apparently 2 acres of farm land are lost to development every minute of every day.  As they say “No farms, no food.”

Today is a great day to do so because their board of directors is matching any donations dollar for dollar through the end of the year.

You can also take their Keep it Local pledge in order to make a commitment to eating locally grown and made foods.

Bon appetit.  ttyl your BFF (Boston Family Foodie)
