Do you want to eat local healthy foods? Want to learn how to grow your own vegetables? Connect with local farmers? Cook delicious dishes with local ingredients? This program will help. I participated last summer and tried some delicious recipes and grew a lot of cool things!

Food Matters Manitoba has a great program that is launching right now called the The Dig In Challenge. The challenge lasts 5 months and runs from February to June 2013.

The great thing about their challenge is that it guides you step-by-step with great workshops, articles and ideas. The e-mail updates every couple weeks bring delicious recipe ideas to your inbox and keep you informed of upcoming events. This is a great program to help you with the tools and support to start your local food journey.
