Back to Pittsburgh's Nature

I went to the Home Show at the Pittsburgh Convention Center on Saturday. By far the most interesting exhibits had to do with home economics -- and with the economics of food, in particular -- rather than with building or remodeling or designing. Even if Pittsburgh's economy is more or less holding its own right now, plenty of people are growing their own, if they can, and supporting local farmers, regardless. Links of note:

Pennsylvania Buy Fresh, Buy Local

Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture

An upcoming Farm to Table Conference

Afterward, I wandered through the Strip District and got my first in-person look at the new organic grocery on Smallman Street (at 23rd Street), Right by Nature.

While I'm at it, here are some links to collections of CSA farms -- Community Supported Agriculture. The spring season is just around the corner. Link 1 Link 2 And here's a list of local farmer's markets and farm stands.

Paging China Millman.
