Join us in our #local30 challenge. For the month of April, we invite you to join us in to include something that was grown locally into your meals each day. Use the #local30 to share! We’ll come together at the end of April to celebrate our experience with a pizza and movie night. This 50-minute film follows Andrea Bemis and her family during their month-long commitment to eating foods grown or harvested within 200 miles of their home. Enjoy a build-your-own-pizza experience before the film and BYOB.

ABOUT THE FILM Local Thirty
What would it look like to eat food from a 200 mile radius of where you live? That was the basic question that started this whole thing.
I'm a farmer, a home cook and cookbook author. My husband Taylor and I (plus dogs Henry and Stoney) farm six acres below Oregon's Mt. Hood. We sell at the Hood River farmer's market, to local restaurants and to over 80 CSA members between the farm and Portland, 70 miles away.
The farm is where my heart is. It's exhausting, inspiring, calming, nerve-wracking, beautiful and terrifying. At this point I can't imagine another life.
But I can imagine a bigger sense of home. This film is about more than just an experiment to eat locally for a month. It's about reducing our dependance on outsourced ingredients, revitalizing ourselves and our economies, and discovering local landscapes and the people who grow/produce our food. You can't put a face to your food if you stay on your own farm all day!
