Locavore: Local Diet, Healthy Planet
A tasty documentary about returning home to our food supply.
Locavore – a person who makes an effort to eat food that is grown, raised, or produced locally, usually within 100 miles of home.
The four biggest challenges facing America are: economic recession, health crisis, worldwide energy crunch and an environmental collapse. Food is a common factor in today’s challenges of economy, health, energy and environment. Eating locally is the most pro-active response and creates more American jobs, diminishes your carbon footprint and increases the health of the future generations.
This film is about empowering all Americans with the knowledge to return our nation to an economically prosperous land, to revitalize health and vitality, to dramatically reduce our energy use and to rejuvenate our environment. If you care about our future step up to your dinner plate and become a locavore. Our future depends on you. Join the Locavore Movement and reshape the world one bite at a time.

Grow A Garden!The ultimate Locavore challenge is to eat produce that is as local as it can ever get, the produce that comes from your own garden. There are new modern high performance garden systems that are super easy, fun, very productive and always organic. The high performance gardens take the “hard” out of gardening. These gardens are compact, require very little time and are virtually weed free. In our busy lives, we don’t have time for a low performance traditional garden. In a high performance garden you can grow enough food for 2-3 people plus plenty to give away with only 15 minutes per day. We can all squeeze out 15 minutes from our schedules.
