Community Economics: Eat Mendocino Project

Community Economics: Eat Mendocino Project

Here's a great example of how the economy of a community can take care of its members. Two women in Mendocino County, CA spent a year eating only food from within the county's limits. Their website tells the tales of their locavore adventure, and shows how important a strong agricultural community is to an individual's well-being. In turn, the publicity generated by the Eat Mendocino project helped support the county's local farmers, ranchers, and producers. The best thing about a community economy is its ability to both help, and be helped, by the community - after all, it is the community's economy.
