Consume regional & seasonal products
The purchase of food from the region and in the season of harvest supports both the local agriculture and the environment. It also supports local gardeners in the future to manage their stocks and contributes to the preservation and creation of valuable habitats for numerous plants and animals.
In many towns and cities there are market gardens that grow their own fruit and vegetables and sell them at market stalls or farm shops. Here, seasonal products and short transport routes are guaranteed. It is also possible to check the origin of food in the supermarket. An additional advantage is the price: If you buy apples in season, they are also cheaper than out of season. Usually local district associations for gardening and landscape conservation or landscape conservation associations promote regional food. On their websites you can find information about private suppliers or offer your own products.
