Are you interested in getting your food locally from healthy sources? Do you want to know your community better? Do you seek products that are made locally? You sound like a localist!
What is a Localist? Localists are people who see value in building a tight-knit community around them, and who want to reap the multitude of benefits that come from such a rich, local community. They’re usually people who have something -- or want to develop something -- to contribute to the richness of their community.
Topics can include, but are no means limited to: - Creating a network to local farmers and producers, allowing us to source our produce. - Learning and enjoying the local area (sharing what you know about the local area). - Learning a new skill/offering a craft product to your friends and community. - Getting to know the people in the community who serve you (local businesses, your kids’ teachers, co-workers). - Canning and preserving foods. - Education/sharing around our options and choices as consumers, skills for greater self-reliance, and ways in which we can live more in line with traditional American principles of liberty.
Let’s spend time together, build community, and share/develop crafts together!
