Eat Local! a 3-part campaign to encourage eating locally
September 19 @ 8:00 AM - September 25 @ 11:30 PM
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, we will be focusing on PRESERVATION of foods for the winter.
The Salish Sea Hub’s campaign will run side-by-side with the Eat Local First month-long campaign throughout the Olympic Peninsula. Join us in our campaigns to find and connect with our local farms, farm stands, and co-ops/food hubs. For more information go to:

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.
Eating Locally and Seasonally
Wondering how to use our locally grown foods? With the support of the regional Transition Hub, Lopez farmers Henning Sehmsdorf and Elizabeth Simpson recently published “Eating Locally and Seasonally,” a wonderful guide for cooking and preserving locally grown food. The book is available, for purchase or as a free e-book. on the Transition Lopez Island website at www.transitionlopezisland.org
