The 30 day local food challenge has now become a familiar theme to us here at The Urban Co-op. Can we sustain ourselves on foods that are locally produced? A global world market has flooded us with foods that we once thought were exotic but now have become the “normal” part of the diet. No I won’t go down the avocado rabbit hole because I assume you are well familiar. But I have wondered and pondered what would happen if we couldn’t have access to the exotic foods due to supply line problems could we enjoy a sustainable local supply?
Lisa Fingleton is the sterling champion for this September based initiative which challenges us to give it a go for 30 days. Let’s face it, it’s a great time to do so! The glut of produce giving the choice at least. Let’s leave aside tea and coffee for one moment… (although there are options for herbals and dandelion root coffee substitutes)….
We’d love to see your food ideas so send us a picture and let’s keep the conversation going. We may be glad we did!
