There is a lot more to eating locally than buying produce at your neighborhood farmers' market. What about all the staple foods we rely on, like grains and beans, that provide most of the calories in our diet? While Oregon's Willamette Valley has the agricultural potential to feed the valley residents twice over, nearly ninety-five percent of what we eat in the Willamette Valley is imported and what's grown here is exported. With the price of all fossil fuels on the rise, a lot of people are beginning to think that this makes no economic or agricultural sense.

Re-creating a Local Food System - The Willamette Valley Bean and Grain Project

There is a lot more to eating locally than buying produce at your neighborhood farmers' market. What about all the staple foods we rely on, like grains and beans, that provide most of the calories in our diet? In Oregon's Willamette Valley we have the agricultural potential to feed the valley residents twice over, yet most of the fertile valley land is dedicated to growing grass seed and commodity wheat that's exported to China. Meanwhile ninety-five percent of what we eat in the Willamette Valley is imported. But with the price of all fossil fuels on the rise, a lot of people are beginning to think that this makes no economic or agricultural sense.
