There is a 100 Mile Trial meeting in Melbourne at Nick Ray’s place – 33 Barkly Street, Footscray – this Thursday the 11th September.
The 100 Mile diet has taken off in many places around the world with people experimenting with sourcing their food from within a 100 mile (160km) radius from where they live.
The greater the number of miles/kilometres our food travels means in all probability the greater the greenhouse emissions. eg A Californian orange travels over 12,800 kms to reach us – a lot of food miles – and typical of a lot of produce in a globalised food production system.
Nick is a driving force in the Ethical Consumer Group which meets once a month to discuss aspects of living out sustainable alternatives in a consumerist culture. He invites you to join a ‘Meet and Movie’ evening on the 100 Mile diet – dinner 6.30 – 7.30pm, 8pm input, movie and chat. Wrap up by 10.30pm.
BYO food and thoughts to share.
RSVP to Nick – firstname.lastname@example.org or ph: 0417 114 492.
Nick says there has been lots of interest so it should be good night!
