Bringing Local Food To Local People(tm) by Sowing the Seeds of Sustainablity(tm)

Fresh Abundance has closed its Spokane Valley store due to zoning problems, according to the Spokesman-Review. When she sought to expand the building, owner Eden BrightSpirit Hendrix was informed the property is not zoned for the store — although the location has housed a store for over fifty years, according to Hendrix.

Hendrix has plans to move the store and adjacent farm, but OTM wonders: if they can change zoning for a big box store why can’t they do it for local farm and organic grocery?
