Good for the Planet

Crab at Food Market, Bangkok, Thailand

I want to simplify good food.

So, I'm working on a new project that I'm calling Good for the Planet.

I'm starting locally and will be seeking out people who are growing, raising and harvesting sustainable meats and produce. I want to find out the how and why of what they do in order to make real food more accessible to their local communities. I want to provide answers to the questions that many people have about locally grown food and encourage the masses to support the "economy of gastronomy" that is consciencious eating.

I want to help spread the word that there are people that make food that tastes better than factory farmed versions, and that they don't make me question my morals.

I'm going to share all of this information so you can decide for yourself if you want to support them.  I am hoping to prove that it is worth your time and money to seek out food that is good for your palate and good for your planet.

I live in Annapolis, Maryland and will mostly be exploring my local territory, but I hope the questions I ask will become a template for others no matter where they live. I want to make it easier for anybody to glean helpful knowledge about the foods they eat.
