How to Go Beyond Organic
“Make it a journey and begin to learn more about your food,” says Hahn Niman, “without becoming obsessive.” In addition to buying organic and local whenever possible, she suggests:
Ask if food was produced in a way that enhances the soil and keeps it alive. Seek out pasture- raised hens, as well as grass- fed beef. Get more connected with food by growing some of your own, maybe starting with herbs on the kitchen windowsill. Grow food in your own garden, or join a community garden.
