My favorite story about local food is when we are about to cook dinner I walk out to the garden and pick tomatoes, squash and cukes! I encourage everyon to pick a sunny spot on their lawn (start small and with vegies you really love), peal bag the sode, mix in some compost and plant you favorite things. Netx year make it bigger and add more types of vegies, and so on , and so on

Tell a story of one of your favorite Vermont local food experiences.
Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. - Barry Lopez
Eating locally food is better for a whole heap of reasons, but it's not always easy. Sharing stories helps us build community, and gives us the chance to learn how to incorporate local food into our lives.
