Foodshed mapping

I came across a fascinating use of Google Maps today via Mark Bittman in the NY Times.  Parke Wilde, a food economist at Tufts, posted 10 Google maps of food/agriculture sites in the U.S., showing sites as diverse as pineapple plantations in Hawaii to giant feedlots in California and North Carolina.  Amazing and frightening.

In contrast, I’ve located on the map below the farm along the Kennebec River where we recently picked strawberries.
