Special December Offer
We have a few copies of a great little book that we'd like to give away
to our online shoppers. The book is "Coming Home to Eat: The Pleasures and 
Politics of Local Foods", by Gary Nabhan (ISBN: 0393020177). This is the 
author's story of trying to eat only foods grown, fished, or caught within 
two hundred miles of his home in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.  As our 
gift, we're giving away one copy this book to five random people who make 
a purchase from the LocalHarvest Stores during the month of December.
