Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

Local Food Month poll

Local Food Month - July 2007Well, it sounds like the almost 30+ people (so far) that will be participating in Local Food Month are already buying a lot of local, sustainable foods and are looking to up things with the challenge.

What better than to get a baseline of things but with a poll?

Also, if you haven't yet "signed up" and want to (if you are, you'll see your name/link on the sidebar to the right), let me know and I'll add a link to your blog so we can follow your progress!

One of the issues that has come up has been when to decide whether eating local is actually worse than buying something sustainably produced, but shipped in from elsewhere. Look for a post this week discussing this...

Oh this sounds great. Sign me up! I try to eat as much local food as i can, but I can always try to do more.

Crunchy - Since we buy our meat locally, obviously it needs to be frozen, due to the quantities. It would be much tougher to buy sustainbly in small quantities.

For me, the health aspects of purchasing local food, along with supporting farmers I know, trump the energy use.

Sign me up as well! I'm so happy to find these challenges...I'd already issued it to myself for the summer, but it's more fun to do it in a group. Plus...the word spreads quicker, farther and faster.
