Thanks, Craig, for your comments on my blog piece. I certainly agree we can find roots farther back than the 1990s. I'm hoping to develop the piece further and look more into the belief/action aspect. I also want to explore a bit more how actual practices of locavorism function as spiritual practices or rituals. I look forward to following your Tables of Plenty project!

I think there is something of a widespread re-alignment of values going on, with many people opting to focus their energies on the familial and the local, shunning the plastic and the consumerist, and seeking above all, the authentic, however that might be constructed.
