Paradise City Press sat down with Claire Morenon of CISA (Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture) in South Deerfield to commemorate the organization's 20th anniversary.

For their anniversary CISA has organized monthly Local Hero Challenges which aim to encourage community members to connect with local farms and to buy and cook with more locally grown products. Claire talks about the challenges, including Farm Stand Bingo and why buying locally is so important for our community.
