USDA Map: "Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food"

USDA/Public Domain

The map below is a pretty neat resource from the USDA that shows agency-supported projects and programs related to local and regional food systems. It compiles data from 2009 to 2011—just click on the dots, which are color-coded according to categories like "Careers in Agriculture" and "Healthy Food Access," to learn more about projects near you. Only catch is the map isn't embeddable, so click through to the page on usda.gov to get started.
