Eating Locally – the New Cool

I've been attending a conference in the arid Southwest this week, and as a result have been reading USA Today, a newspaper I never really look at. But, lo and behold, on page 5D of today's Life section, there's an article about a couple in Vancouver, British Columbia who decided last year to spend an entire year eating only what was grown within a 100-mile radius of their home.  (The story also is available on USATODAY.com's website.) They now have a site, http://100milediet.org, that provides visitors with resources on how to eat locally, how to buy in bulk, and how to can and preserve food. This is a great resource for anyone who's really thinking that they want to make a commitment to eating locally, but don't quite know where to start.
