Why Local Matters is an idea I’ve been kicking around for a while. During the past few years of launching WINEormous, I’ve had wonderful opportunities to meet winemakers, winery owners, chefs and people from all walks of life. I’ve had the chance to travel a lot; to Nova Scotia, Alabama, Maine, Mexico, Washington state and other spots, too. What has struck me is that we are all neighbors, we are all intertwined and wherever we are, local matters.
I have been introduced to the Slow Food movement and think that what they are espousing is so important. Leah Di Bernardo has become a good friend and she’ll be sharing her thoughts on this forum. I simply ask that you stop to think before you shop or eat. Instead of supporting a franchise, is there a local option? So many of our neighbors are pouring their hearts and souls into creating delicious healthy foods and crafting exquisite works of art.
What are your thoughts? I look forward to hearing from you. I have been videotaping interviews from my travels and around the corner and will begin sharing them soon here. Thanks for stopping by.
