"GROWING LOCAL - The Truth About YOUR Food"

Hello EAT LOCAL friends!...new year, new traditions...
Let's continue our monthly tradition of gathering together to share food and watch another great film!!!

The film this month will be "No Impact Man"
Colin Beavan decides to completely eliminate his personal impact on the environment for the next year. No problem – at least for Colin – but he and his family live in Manhattan. So when his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray, the 
No Impact Project has an unforeseen impact of its own.

          TUESDAY, January 11 @

      Artesano Jewelry and Gallery
    Fountain Square, DWNT FWB         

We will hang out and eat yummy food from 5:00-6:00ish, then together clean up and and get ready for the movie which will start promptly at 6:30. 
Remember, this is a POTLUCK - so, please bring a food (with serving utensils) or beverage to share featuring local/regional foods.

And it would be
 great if you could bring plates and cups for your own use,  Remember the idea is to reduce your impact!

Here's a reminder on our food guidelines:The main portion of any dish should be from local or regional ingredients grown or harvested in Florida, Georgia, or Alabama. For example, zucchini bread should be made with zucchini that's as local as possible. But the flour, eggs, and other ingredients could be from anywhere, though if you can get them local--or organic—all the better. Any meat should be from organic or free-range animals. And yes, harvested can include wild plants, nuts, fish or game.
Here is a list of what's available in town:
