Outside, although it is officially Spring, we are in the midst of a snow/ice storm that has engulfed New England in a heavy wet blanket of snow... just a humble reminder that we are never in full control !
Inside, the locally based diet is still going strong. It has been so nice to reconnect with our locavore ways... such as searching for ingredients, dreaming up recipes, and most importantly rejuvenating the Localrootz Blog ! We have been getting more feedback than ever about what we have been up to in the kitchen as well as people sharing their own great stories about local food projects and resources. It is these connections that that will help set the foundation towards a more sustainable food system as well as a more pleasant community in which we can all enjoy.
Speaking of our great community we really wanted extend an enormous thank you to all the wonderful people who have helped us spread the word about our Localrootz project. Just this week we were very excited to see "Maine's Healthy Cook" Meg Wolff feature us in her monthly newsletter. Check it out HERE ! And for more information about Meg Wolff, her amazing story and to purchase her great books... you should head over to her official website or stop by and say hello next time she is doing a book signing in your
area ! Another exciting addition to our media attention this week was the Portland Press Herald's article... check it out HERE ! We had no idea Avery Yale Kamila, aka Portland Best Foodie Reporter was going to do this for us, and it was so uplifting to see it !
With the voting segment rapidly coming to a close we are excited about how much this contest has helped us connect with our community as well as helped us grow together as a couple. Together we look toward the future and take great pride in the foundation that this great contest has helped provide. Without the extra push from Clay Hill, our family and friends, we don't think we would ever have shared our passions and shouted our green message so loudly as we we have in these past few weeks.
We have become more aware of our actions and how they can inspire other people to make a difference in the way they live their own lives... whether it be riding a bicycle to work, carpooling, planting a garden, shopping at the farmers market, asking their grocery store to supply more locally sourced produce... the list goes on and on. It is these small actions, that may seem like small drop in a very large ocean, that create long lasting ripple effects that reverberate for the whole world to hear !
So we ask you "How Green Can You Be?"
