Coming back from Lake Placid yesterday after a day speaking to 4th and 5th Graders on local food at Conservation Field Days hosted by 4-H from our office. We were able to enjoy some wonderful autumn colors. The leaves are changing and the hills look amazing. I had the opportunity to talk to some 140 students about local food, where to find it, how to tell it is local and why it makes a different to know where your food comes from.
I was sharing presentation space with Gail Brill from the Adirondack Green Circle, who was talking about “How Green Are You?” I was able to hear snippets every so often and it sounded very interesting. Gail and the Green Circle group are very strong supports of buying local and connecting with local farms.
This growing season I was asked to speak to a number of different groups one of which was the Altrurian Group on the topic of the “Environment of Local”. I created a powerpoint presentation that could run in the background while I spoke to the group. Click the link below to ‘see’ what they saw during my talk.
The Environment of Local
Now that I am closer to my computer in the coming weeks I will resume more regular postings.
