"One recent development in the growing localism movement is the 100-Mile Diet, originated by a Canadian couple who spent a full year eating only foods grown or raised within 100 miles of their home."

Lots of links at the link.

I sure wish restaurants would adopt this policy, also! Then we could all get fresher food while supporting local agriculture, even when we go out to eat.

For it to work in big metropolitan areas, one thing that has to change is sprawl. There can be sprawl, but with farmland set asides to someone can grow on it for the locals. California has so much fertile farmland and great soil all over the place. It's a shame we don't value that natural resource more highly.
