Eat Local Challenge | Reading Group

by Jeanne

May Day this year marks the start of the second annual Eat Local Challenge.  As part of this effort Jen over at Life Begins @ Thirty has brought together many of us under one roof with the launch of a new group blog

As a part of this effort I will be co-moderating with Barbara from Tigers & Strawberries an online book group focused on food politics. The books to be discussed will be both fiction and non-fiction. The objective is to not only learn from what we are reading but to enhance the reading through open discussion, thoughts and ideas from each other.

So what will we be reading first?  The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan. This book is a must-read for those of us looking to better understand the impact of our food choices.  Read more over at Eat Local Challenge.
