Having grown up in the Bay Area, and recently moved to Sac, I can tell you the scene there is booming! A deep undercurrent of sustainability can be found Down- and Mid-town; bike-commuter friendly with a 32-mile river trail stretching through the eastern communities of Rancho Cordova and Carmichael all the way out to “rural” Folsom. One can even get all the way up to Natomas, if one really needed to, by bike.
Organic food is easy to find at the many farmer’s markets downtown and in the nearby farming communities- check out resources below.
Local shopping reflects this too, with the Sac Foods Coop, supporting the agricultural bounty of nearby Soil Bourne Farms, Fat Belly Farms, etc.
What is needed is more solar power support for local communities in the area, as well as a better storm water plan. SMUD, the local energy utility, offers 100% green and renewable energy packages that do not add a lot to one’s monthly bill ( they also have a discount for electric medical equipment users).
CLUCK is a local organization working to change local zoning to allow backyard chickens, a key component to food independence and responsibility.
