Join Transition Colorado for Eat Local Week!

Readers in the Rockies, and other frontier foodies, get ready to sample the best Colorado has to offer. From August 27th to September 4th, Transition Colorado is celebrating Eat Local Week 2011. Learn, attend lectures and films about key food issues, and of course, EAT! Visit Transition Colorado for more information, and to register for special events.

Food has always been integral to the way we live. Nowhere are we more powerfully connected than in the daily cultivation, preparation and enjoyment of food—and food is the central component of our health, culture, environment, and relocalization/sustainability efforts.

Transition Colorado’s 2011 EAT LOCAL! Week celebrates the delights and benefits of locally grown and locally processed food, featuring local family farms and farmers’ markets, along with the outstanding restaurants, grocers, and organizations which support them. Please join us for nine days of inspiring and informative events—and an abundance of fresh, delicious local food!

And if you get jazzed about the Transition Town concept while sampling the local finery, take time to learn some more with a book on the subject. Rob Hopkins is the author of the original Transition Handbook, and he’s just finished a new book on this fascinating, five-year-old, global social experiment, The Transition Companion.
