Even though it’s winter, we’re not hibernating. There have been quite a few changes to The Local Beet over the past month. We’re a young site and we’re excited about the future, even though it’s cold and gray outside.

Welcome our two newest bloggers!
There are two new voices at The Local Beet. First, accomplished chef and activist Melissa Graham is “The Sustainable Cook”. She is dedicated to the principles behind the word “sustainability” and she’ll be providing tips and motivation to help you make good decisions about what you eat.

“The Backyard Farmer”, Brad Moldofsky, is an amateur gardener with nothing but passion and hard work on his gardening résumé. He’s going to take us with him as he learns and strives to feed his family from the food that he grows in his backyard. As a failed vegetable gardener myself, I’m eagerly awaiting his posts.

Check out our new design
We’ve updated our design to better highlight the different content that we’re adding. We’ll be adding a few more tweaks over time. I hope you like it.

New resources
We’re developing new features like a guide to finding local food, a bookstore, and more to come. These features are in their infancy, but we hope they’ll become more and more useful as time goes on.

If you’ve got any feedback or questions about the site, we’d love to hear them. Thank you for reading and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving,

Michael Morowitz
