Keep it Simple

  • When planning for Apple Day, consider pairing up with a local orchard to acquire your apples. This can be the start of a new partnership in the community and you can help support local farmers at the same time. 

Take it Further

  • The next time you are at the grocery store look at the produce and the stickers/labels that are on them. Record the different places that you see and discuss with the group how much produce you saw comes from locally sourced places.
