Food

Local sources and sustainable agricultural practices can provide us with a high-quality, healthy, affordable and secure supply of food. We should continually seek to help local food producers sell their goods directly to consumers, such as by providing a permanent location for Keene’s farmer’s market. We should also continue to support household and community gardens as well as sustainable food-production methods and education opportunities, linking local food with health, economic development, and land-use and climate-change goals.
