You may have heard that there is a severe drought in California. As you probably know that doesn’t mean we are immune to it. Much of the country’s produce comes from that state and the effects of the drought can and will be felt here in the grocery stores. Mother Jones has an interesting article that talks about how much water it takes to grow produce. Check it out here. Lets all pray for rain and do a little dance too.

Thanks to Linda V. on the Environment & Conservation Committee for passing along this article.
