Based on some of the advice and interesting posts I've read on Gather and by the Locavore Nation I've seen struggles (and successes) for people trying to eat locally. But do people consider it important?
This Policy and a Pint event is all about thinking globally & eating locally:
Want to fill your plate with food from our local farms? It's more complicated than we often realize. Join us Wednesday, May 6 at 5:30 p.m., join host Steve Seel as he talks with Dara Moskowitz-Grumdahl, food critic for Minnesota Monthly, and Scott Pampuch, chef at the Corner Table in Minneapolis.
Share your own resources and ideas on how you eat locally. I'm also seeking commentary on how important you think it is to be a locavore.
This is an open discussion. You're welcome to link to your related Gather articles or other online resources. Your comments & articles may be quoted on http://minnesota.publicradio.org/your_voice/ or you may be contacted to join the Public Insight Network.
