More locally grown organic produce. We drive clear over to Boulder to access organic locally grown food. Restaurants that engage with locally grown organic produce and pastured meats would be great also. We support those restaurants in other communities.Also, amend local laws around HOAs. Make it so everybody can have chickens and bees and garden in their front yards. If people are going to have to use water for landscaping, at least let it have a purpose and decrease our chemical laden, water intensive yards.

I encourage brainstorming ways to help seniors access local fresh produce, especially given the Covid19 situation, e.g. Eagle View Kitchen be used as a procurement and distribution center for Seniors in Brighton low income housing; coordinate with Anneli Berube, Ag Innovation Specialist.

More open air markets with farm-to-market connections for people to buy fresh produce.
