I recently returned from a journey to Louisiana, where people I met opened their hearts and offered a piercing look at life behind post-Katrina headlines. Please read on to join me on a journey of bearing witness to fractured lives and interrupted dreams.

Hi Anne -
James Godsil, Milwaukee’s guardian angel, has adopted the eat local challenge in his uniquely glorious way. Read on to see James’ contribution to the movement via his warm example
of asking the place he frequents how they source the food they
serve…and then sharing his own story and creating another way for others to do the same. He is extending the movement’s reach way beyond our little group effort!
Please note one of the most important take-away messages here: he has enough of a relationship with the folks at the RiverWest Coop to have a conversation with them about the food they offer and where it is born…
A holistic appreciation for what eating local means…knowing the food’s many stewards…the growers, keepers, preparers, servers…
Thank you James, as always, for creating community and being a light along the path.
