Our hearts are heavy with the senseless gun violence seen in Buffalo, Laguna Woods, and Uvalde these past two weeks. It is past time for political change and to make sure our voices are heard by politicians in office with the power to make this change. But local change is necessary and impactful as well. This Op-Ed from Civil Eats explores how community-driven structural change is necessary for long-term changes in communities such as Buffalo and is a reminder of the impact local organizations and leaders can have on the health of all.
As the days are suddenly longer and summer is just around the corner we can see the abundance of East End’s farmland all around us. Farms are an essential part of not only the economy on Long Island but also an integral part of our history and culture.
We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite farm stands, and we hope you’ll check them out this summer! It’s a great way to bring fresh food home to your table while supporting local farmers.
