Local Eating

Local Eating Concept = Eat only foods grown or produced within 100 miles of where you live.

My sister-in-law's family started on this adventure about 2 weeks ago.

They are chronicling their adventure on a blog called Eat Near Rockford, pretty interesting read. Some of the ways they are going about sourcing their food are much more easily done in a community situated in the midst of rural farmland. It would be near impossible for me to do this in downtown Chicago, and also because I can't make a giant garden. They have a large property to grow food, a large kitchen to can food, and plenty of storage space to store what they can. Good luck to the Holdmann Family.
