The New Movement: Toward Sustainability

Produce at the Downtown Wooster Farmers' MarketBy Shannon Dade, revised by Thuy Dinh

In the United States today, increased concern about the nutritional, economic, and environmental impact of large-scale commercial farming has led many Americans to place a greater importance on locally grown food. These concerns are especially relevant in Wayne County, Ohio, which is home to a number of small farms and organic producers. Many Wooster residents have joined together to support these farms and provide local, sustainably produced food to the community.
