It's not that local eating is a novel idea these days. It's a pretty trendy thing to do, and usually that scares me away from most things. But this thing seems to be important enough to take head on regardless of pop culture jumping on the bandwagon as well. But we...we my friends are actually doing something about this trendy issue.
One year ago today I posted about Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I had recently found her interview on i-tunes and I immediately reserved the book at the library. I was happily surprised by the fact that there was a long wait for the book. I waited. I read. My brain was changed for ever. I knew instantly that I had to have a change of heart when it came to food.
Depression and helplessness set in.
Now I'm doing something about it for real, and that feels really good. Even if it's a long shot from what Barbara Kingsolver was able to do. At least it's something! And you all?! Thank you endlessly for joining me on this journey. It had made a huge difference to me in keeping me motivated and inspired and accountable!
I'll be back in town next week and I'll post our final round up for the summer on Labor Day. Totally fitting for the holiday, don't you think?
