    Worth watching.

    I like to think "eat smart". If ther are a tomatoes growing in a heated greenhouse with artificial lights, while it's -20 C / -4 F outside, the tomatoes are fresh and they are local but they definetly aren't smart. Most food is best when they're local and native, some foods are ok for the transport, and some foods just shouldn't be done artificially locally. The transport may well be more green than trying to cultivate and grow on a bad land and/or in a wrong place.

    It's a bit like once you've had a steak in Argentina, you feel like a vegetarian elsewhere ;-)

    I agree...I am so sick of the tasteless hot house tomatoes and cucumbers we get in the winter from God knows where....next month will start the new cycle of local farm fresh available veggies, which will go right through to November...plus what we grow....
