I am sure that eating local will be the topic of many blog posts for me. I read a wonderful book about eating local by one of my favorite authors this summer. This is not the only thing that has made me think that eating local is best.
As I sat watching the local news this morning, I was listening to information about a Growing Health 2008 conference/seminar/workshop that is coming in September. The Rural Health Network of South Central NY is sponsoring this event at a local hotel on September 3.
The event is from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Regency in Binghamton. It features local foods made by local chefs and caterers. An event like this is a wonderful way to see and taste the difference between local foods and those that you buy in the grocery that come from Chile or even California.
You can read more about the event and register – yes, there is a cost – here.
