This is a message to all those who care about the earth, this planet, and those who inhabit the earth. It isn’t too late to do something about all the issues that we face as humans. This blog is about LOCAL FOOD – who grows it, who makes it, who sells it, who markets it, who eats it. Anyone who appreciates a good meal is bound to find this site useful. I host a radio program called Locavore! on CFRU 93.3 FM, based out of Guelph, Ontario. On this show I talk to farmers, processors, restaranteurs, chefs, retailers, brewers, winemakers, researchers, nutritionists, politicians, pretty well anyone who has an impact on the food system as we experience it. Although this show is based out of southern Ontario, we would like to hear from anyone involved in the local food revolution, in whatever capacity they may be involved. The trend towards using local food is the ying to the yang of globalization. It is a way for us to take back control. Control of perhaps the most important thing – what we choose to put into our bodies. Fifteen years ago I grew fruits and vegetables for a local restaurant in the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. Some people did not believe I could grow field tomatoes commercially in central Alberta. I did. The chef I grew for is now the executive chef at one of the most prestigious hotels in Canada. We didn’t know it at the time, but we were on the ground floor of the local food movement. This blog will highlight how determined, principled, and inventive people are bringing local food to us.
