Universtiy of Richmond and Local Foods
The University of Richmond has been taking action to support local, sustainable foods. The campus created a special CSA option for staff that allowes them to enjoy perks like on campus delivery of their weekly shares. They also created a community garden where staff, and students can have their own plots. Now the University of Richmond Boatwright Library has partnered with The Rural Virginia Market to create a library guide for local foods. Providing a list of relevant reading, the library guide also offers web links to area farms and recipe sites. You can check out the library guide here.
