Long Island Press Features Lighthearted Locavore

"Get some help from the Lighthearted Locavore, a Long Islander who knows a thing or two about where to shop local." 6/4/09, Long Island Press

Click over to the article -- there's lots of useful resources for Long Island Locavores (and some fun artwork too)!
