math lessons for locavores

In link on August 21, 2010 at 3:20 pm

here is a fascinating piece in the times about the (not so new anymore) locavore movement, which essentially argues that it’s better to only eat locally grown produce. now, that’s all well and good if you’re only eating native produce. but once you start trying to grow lemons in boston (in a greenhouse, of course), you are obviously defeating your own purpose.

the author of the piece, however, points out additional flaws in the thinking.

i certainly can’t wait until i have my own backyard for my own vegetable garden * sigh *
