Learning about Sustainable Eating on a Local Food Tour
A raised bed of beans growing up bed springs.
A great idea I gleaned on a local food tour at Rachel Murphy's small farm.
On April 29th I had the pleasure of joining in on part of a local foods tour. Russell Fox, a Friend's University Professor, organized the tour out of his passion for local eating and sustainable choices. Russell taught an eight week seminar class called "The Politics of Food," and took his class on a local foods tour to learn more about sustainable eating in our area. Everything you need to know, plus pictures, can be found on Russell's excellent blog post. If you haven't already, be sure to watch the video about Leroy, a special friend of ours who always challenges me to live a more vibrant life.
Good news!! Russell plans to teach the course and do the tour again next year. Anyone want to enroll at Friend's University just to join the class?!!!
