I’m Kate, a twenty-something lately of Brooklyn, now in Santa Cruz, CA, and a Johnny-come-lately to both local food sustainability and blogging.
This blog is a visual exploration and mapping out of the issues surrounding local food, including the associated debates regarding economics, environmentalism, geography, sustainability and taste. What does eating locally mean, and how can it be done?
I’ve worked at a restaurant, an organic CSA farm and a law firm, among other places, and I liked the farm best. Working with my hands to grow plants, watching them shoot up from seedlings and knowing that they would be food in just a few months really pulled together my food-snobbery and environmental tendencies into one delicious, local mindset. I’m trying to eat more locally, and explore what works for me. Welcome!
