If you've ever been to Rockford City Market, you've probably seen Anderson Organics' produce. This week for Going Green, we take a look at where their product is grown and why it's so good for the environment.
Anderson Organics was started in 2010 as a collaboration within the Anderson family. The main goal was to promote a healthy community, but the benefits reach into the environment.
Philip Anderson, one of the founders, says "The number one thing in terms of the environment is the long term global health of the soil and the fact that we'll be able to keep growing vegetables, fruits and everything we want in a hundred years from now."
The family also says when it rains the chemicals don't run off into the environment.
They're also a local company so the produce does not have to travel far to get to its destination. You can find them at Rockford City Market on Fridays in the summer. Or, check out their website AndersonOrganics.org to learn how you can get a share of their produce.
