Eat local.

In December, I wrote on friends James MacKinnon and Alisa Smith who have been spending the better part of a year experimenting with the 100-mile diet: everything they eat and drink for home consumption must have origins within 100 miles of their Vancouver home. Yesterday, they launched a new website for the endeavor. 100milediet.org. Visit and you can map your 100-mile territory, read about their experiences, or share your thoughts on the project.

Local Food Challenge:
And a shout out to Sarah Alexander of the White Earth Land Recovery Project and her friends at the White Earth Tribal College who are halfway through a similar yearlong project--they'll only eat food produced within 250 miles of their community.
