    Stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joes are known for having organic produce and buy locally. They are not perfect and not everything is organic. But they often support local farmers who grow organically.

    I recommend this website to learn about organic farming:

    If you do not have a store that has organic produce near you, go to your local farms and buy direct. or look into a farmer's market. If there is not one, try to get one going.

    Teach people why organic is better and build support.
