The Badges and The Details

Take a badge for the Go Local Challenge 2009. Link it back to this post so your readers can join in too, and get cookin' so you can add your local food experiences to the first Mr. Linky on
JUNE FIRST.

The Go Local Challenge Rules:

Who: Anyone who wants to challenge themselves to buy local, eat local, or grow local food/handmade items
What: A challenge to eat one meal per week consisting of locally(within 250 miles from where you are) produced ingredients. You get salt, pepper, spices and oil for free. (I also take liberties with basic baking necessities like soda, sugar, flour, etc.)
When: Every Monday from June through August Mr. Linky will appear. You can post a link back to your blog once, or every week throughout the summer any day of the week.
Where: You post about the foods you are eating locally, the conversation you had with a local grower/farmer, the pictures you took of your very own garden, the dinner you made from scratch using foods grown by someone who loves growing food, the local food potluck party you threw on Market Saturday...Bring it all right back here and we'll come see what you've been up to.
Why: To inspire and be inspired to eat healthy, local foods. It's good for you. It's good for the environment. It's good for the economy.

Don't Miss Out!
