“Eat for Devon”: press coverage

Thank you for taking part in this challenge. Between us, we have already increased our awareness of the issues around using locally sourced food. Local papers are interested in our experiment; we’ve got items in the Teignmouth Post and Herald Express.

“Eat for Devon”: review and feed-back

Please let us know how you got on with this challenge, whether you’ve been eating locally produced food for years and sailed through, or whether you couldn’t get started, or are somewhere in between.

What can we each do next as Transition Group members, to increase local resilience? Will you continue trying to source local food? Please leave a comment.

“Eat for Devon”: celebrate – share a meal

The week’s experiment is drawing to a close. How about arranging with friends or family to share a meal tomorrow to which you each bring a contribution of locally produced or sourced food?

“Eat for Devon”: food swap

How about organising a ‘food swap’ with friends, neighbours or colleagues – if you each swap something you’ve grown in your garden (or windowsill) then you both get more variety.

“Eat for Devon”: half-way through

Hi how’s it going? Is anyone struggling? Is it getting easier or more difficult? Too expensive? Let us know what the issues are.

Haven’t got started yet? It’s not too late! If you could plan just one meal using locally produced/sourced food it will help us to understand more about the challenges involved in this experiment.
