[cg] nutrient comparisons between home grown vs. store bought vegetables
I am wondering if anyone out there can point me
in the right direction for finding out whether there is any scientific data
quantifying the nutrient quality of home-grown or community grown vegetables
compared to those bought in the supermarkets.
I know that veggies grown and consumed fresh do
have a higher nutrient content than veggies trucked in from out of state but I
need some scientific references to use for some research that I am doing.
I am doing this so that I can bolster my argument in favor of community
supported gardening and agriculture.
If anyone has any information pointing me in the
right direction, please email me.
Thank you for your help.
