The essential guide for anyone with limited time, cash, and space who wants to incorporate locally grown foods into their lifestyle "For most of us, it is not at all straightforward how to restore locavore ethics into our diets and our lives. With this book, Leda Meredith shows us where to start." from the Foreword by Sandor Ellix Katz, author of Wild Fermentation and The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved These days, more people than ever want to eat green and local, but tight schedules and even tighter budgets can make this seem like an unattainable goal. The Locavore's Handbook is here to help! Leda Meredith offers practical, down-to-earth advice as she guides foodies, home cooks, and anyone else interested in the locavore movement through the process of incorporating locally grown foods into meals. Drawing from her own locavore experience, she discusses budgeting; sourcing, growing, and preserving food; shopping efficiently; and supporting local merchants and planet Earth. Everyone, including time-pressed, cash-strapped urbanites with mini-refrigerators and zero storage space, will find inspiration and a host of helpful ideas."
