A few years ago me and my dad started a garden. We planted carrets, tomatoes, and green beans. Only the tomatoes came out good but it was really fun. But the tomatoes over ran our house, we had some many that we haven't done another garden until this year. Hopefully our garden is good but we don't get over run with tomatoes this year.
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.
