Welcome to Tuesday Greens #18! As we are heading towards February this week, I wanted to let you know some more about the Longview Center of Agriculture’s Locavore Challenge. Longview is located in Collegeville, PA and has 120 acres of organically and sustainably farmed land. They are a section of Greener Partners and they produce food in all 4 seasons.
This year, they are hosting the Locavore Challenge, which runs from February 1st through March 3rd. Each day, Longview has issued a specific challenge to push folks to live and eat more locally this winter. They run the gamut from reading about gardening and sustainable food practices to trying new recipes using produce that is grown locally at this time of year. Kids’ and family events are planned and you can visit the market to purchase local foods. If you want to check them out ahead of time, pop on over to their calendar.
If you sign up for their email alerts, you will receive the week’s challenges. As you complete the challenges, you can submit your proof of participation, via email or stopping in at the market with a photo, to earn raffle tickets. Some of the prizes that can be won in the raffle include market gift certificates, workshops, special market discounts, and local food baskets. You can follow me along on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and here on the blog to see how we are doing with the daily challenges. I am very excited to see how this can push me to be a better locavore!
