This Meetup is for locavores, foodies, vegans, vegetarians, nutritarians, meatatarians, agrarians, environmentalists and everything in between!
Our focus is attending social events relating to foods grown or raised within 250km of Burlington, Ontario Canada.
Gathering friends old and new to visit farmer's markets, attend farm tours and festivals, dine at restaurants featuring local products are just some events we do. These are fun and educational excursions as a group. creating community, and sharing knowledge and experience plus the fruits of our labour with one another is our focus. Trade heritage seeds, plants recipes and preserves. Discuss relevant books, share meals from each others gardens from the simple to the sublime. Seeking out local organic sources for our food to support our local farmers is the life's purpose of Eat Local Burlington. We encourage you to develop relationships with your local grocery store owner and ask for local organic goods to be carried. Root-cellaring, bee-keeping, year-round gardening, sprouting, preserving and where to find free range local organic meat and eggs...these are just some areas to explore!
