Forage puts foraging on hold due to yet another arcane city regulation
Progressive urban farmers in Silver Lake just can't catch a break. First, Silver Lake Farms gets hassled for selling flowers, though vegetables are ok; now Forage can't collect produce from local gardeners because it's not "certified." Forage has posted a note on its website explaining that it will still accept produce to be donated to community food programs, but the restaurant will have to source all the food it cooks from farmer's markets. Fortunately, Silver Lake Farms has been making excellent progress towards passing the Food & Flowers Freedom Act; hopefully Forage and its supporters can make some similar progress towards enlightening city officials. Do you think there's a risk accepting produce from the public?
