Now reading Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life.” The Kingsolver family decides to do a one-year experiment: eat only food raised in their own region or grown themselves. They give up faraway goods (each person is allowed only one exception!). In Minnesota, can we eat local year-round? What would we have to give up? What faraway food item would be your one exception (bananas? olive oil? coffee?) Let’s talk.
Invite friends! No need to do the reading to enjoy conversation and friendship. We start a new book in May.
