I'm going to try to offer some interesting links to news and activities in local foods and promising innovations in consumption on Fridays. Here is today's offering:
- Spokane has some work to do to catch up to Seattle in our recycling efforts.
- Some people are adopting the low carbon diet proposed by Bon Appetit Food Management.
- Others are taking a different approach and working on a low carbon cow.
- Folks in Petersborough, N.H. have the novel idea of having the food bank hire farmers to provide food for their constituents.
- The city of Spokane is giving away bikes to Green businesses.
- Master Food Preservers of Spokane County are offering a class on the Essentials of Home Canning on Sunday, April 24 at 4pm. Go here to register.
- Don't forget to "plant a row for the hungry". Take your bounty directly to Second Harvest Food Bank and they will give you a receipt that will get you a $1.50/pound tax deduction.
- Support your local garden centers and greenhouses this year.
Time for me to go build a chicken coop, otherwise Nancy is going to make me move into the laundry room with the fast growing chickies.
