Guide will show where to get locally grown produce

COOS COUNTY, Ore. -- Are you looking to have a more local, sustainable diet? The South Coast Community Garden Association may be able to help.

The group is gathering a list of restaurants, markets, ranchers and other places where you can find local produce.

They're going to make a sustainable food guide, and hope to have it out by the end of April.

Susan Hopkins, president of the SCCGA, says it will be a useful tool when planning your next shopping trip. "So, you actually know who is growing your food and that that is based on trust. You know that the person growing your tomatoes is going to do the best job they can to make the most healthy tomatoes," she said.

The association is also looking for help in producing the guide.

If you know of a place to get local food from Reedsport to Langlois, you can send it to socoastgardens@gmail.com.
