Right now in school, I am growing herbs for our school cafeteria and it is really fun. I like comin gin in the morning to school and seeing how mmuch the plants have grown. Right now we are growing Sweet Basil, Basil, Thyme, Parsley, and Oregano. We are also growing sunflower seed from our school garden that we collected in the fall.
Food Challenge #5
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.
- Pick a Food Category: Procuring/Growing/Eating/Sharing
- Check out our resource tips on the elements of a good story and why eating local is important.
- Tell YOUR story. Make it memorable, meaningful, funny, or moving. It should be one you want to tell - and one you'd want to hear.
Haven't had a good local food experience? Have a chat with someone involved in the local food economy and get their story.
