Sustainable Agriculture

Just because something is grown locally doesn’t mean that it is better for the environment. Researchers at the University of California Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program are trying to figure out what the “greenest” way of shipping food is. What is better for the environment a bunch of local farmers driving their produce to farmers markets or one huge truck delivering all the food at once? These are the types of questions that the researchers are looking at to find the most sustainable way of shipping food.
