Tucker's Tips: Take the 100 Mile Diet Challenge

Do some research on Local Harvest to locate as many sources of food within a 100 mile radius of your home. If your search turns up an unsubstantial amount of local food producers, rally! Support your local farmers markets, and ask your friends to do the same. Hit the market as a group, and make a meal together afterward. Invite more friends the next week. When these farmers receive your support, they're able to produce more food. By eating locally, within a 100 mile radius, you are likely to also eat in season. Becoming a part of your local foodshed is a win-win for everyone.
