Sept 19th-25th: Local 20/20 (The Salish Sea Transition Hub) Eat Local!
The Salish Sea Transition Town Hub (that includes Port Townsend’s Local 2020 group, and Lopez, Fidalgo, and San Juan Island’s Transition Town groups), is continuing its Eat Local! Campaign from September 19th – 25th. During this week, they will be focusing on PRESERVATION of foods for the winter.
There are many reasons to eat locally grown food (nutrition, freshness, flavor) but one of the most important reasons is this: to make a dependable local food system a reality, the farmers need eaters – that’s all of you out there – committing to purchasing the food shared at our numerous farm stands, CSAs, farmers markets, and co-ops or food hubs.
