Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks for family friends and all of the other blessings of life. It's also a day of feasting, with families all across the nation gathering together to enjoy delicious food. For those who are hosting a thanksgiving meal, shopping local is a great way to support local growers and help the environment at the same time.
Shopping local reduces the cost, energy and time that it takes to ship food in from other places. California as a state is very lucky due to the abundance of fresh and locally grown produce that is readily available. Daniel Roth, Media Relations Manager for the California Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, explains how kitchen cooks across the Golden State, can shop for local ingredients that will enhance their Thanksgiving meal and help to save our planet.
