localvore-localag-discussion - A Discussion List about Local Foods and Agriculture in Northern New England

Subject: A Discussion List about Local Foods and Agriculture in Northern New England

Statement of Purpose

Localvores are local food advocates committed to eating foods grown within their local foodshed.

This localvore and local agriculture discussion list is a place for sharing information that will help us find, use and promote foods grown within our northern New England region. It is a place to share sources of hard-to-find local foods, recipes, tips on kitchen gardening and putting foods by; links to outstanding web sites, articles and books; info on locally-grown food events. It is also a place to ask questions relevant to our local food supply.

One of our missions is to create a network of people from neighboring villages to promote and nourish a viable local food system. We cultivate involvement through educational programs, encouraging the sharing of knowledge, skills and resources. In addition to supporting local agriculture and making use of existing assets, we work to build the needed infrastructure to abolish food insecurity. Our goal is to forge self reliance and foster community thereby improving our quality of life.
