Being a locavore (eating only what is grown and raised near you) is an amazing idea to not only ensure you get the freshest food, but it also supports your local economy and reduces the carbon impact from shipping food long distances. The challenge is that often times local produce is difficult to find and appears only in specialty markets or stands.
Local Dirt aims to connect local produce growers and those who want to buy the goods online. Althoug hthe system has few entires for produce sellers, and they are located mainly in the Carolinas, the concept is fundementally doun. The challenge is to get local producers to buy into the system and then only then can you begin to market to the locavore community. There is no sense in promoting an empty box. I hope my local market gets onto the system so I can see what is being grown and sold locally.
