Our second Going Local week in Indianapolis, celebrating local foods, is set for September 6 – 12, 2009. The Going Local website has a Going Local Week page where you can find more information. Also on that website is the blog of Victoria Wesseler, a leader of Indy’s Going Local movement. Of the many interesting links on her site, you might want to look at the 2009 Indiana Farmers’ Market, U-Pick and Agritourism Directory from the Indiana Department of Agriculture.
Ellen Flexman (East 38th Street Library) and Julie Able (Central Library) have put together a list of library titles relating to eating local foods and eating slow.
