More Local Stuff

With our daily choices of where we buy our goods and services, we as citizens create our economy. John McKnight of the Asset-Based Community Development Institute lists “Economy” as one of the 6 realms where citizens have incredible power to lead, transform, and create healthy systems in society (article/book).

It’s amazing what you can buy locally, when you start looking for it.  Here are more links for local services and products. Please let post your favorites below in the comments field!
