Nicole Sager
Have you ever been faced with the clear certainty that the culinary arts have a great propensity to rendering themselves unsavory?
Nicole Sager, The Fate of Arcrea

Building and supporting these local economies is critical to our bottom line. As repeatedly proven by Building Alliances for Local Living Economies (BALLE), spending at a locally owned business on average keeps 68 out of every 100 dollars circulating within the community. When spending on things from outside our communities, however, only 43 dollars stay local.
Richard W. Jelier Ph.D.
