"Eat Well" Tour Kicks Off in West Hollywood Today

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The Sustainable Table's Eat Well nation-wide roadtrip kicks off in West Hollywood today from 11:30a - 2:00p in King's Road Park. They're out to raise awareness about how sustainable living in general and supporting local foods in particular can have a meaningful and positive impact on the environment, human & animal health, and energy consumption patterns. They've even got their very own Google mashup tracking the progress of their sweet ride, and, of course, a blog:

We have no idea how many people will show up - maybe 10, maybe 100 - to us, the numbers don't matter. What we care about is the passion and enthusiasm we've encountered in the people we've been dealing with - and we care that we can share this all with you....we're traveling via bio-fueled bus to over 25 cities across the country to celebrate and spread the word about the inspiring things that people are doing to support the sustainable food movement.

Their website also offers one of those nifty little slogans to help you remember the steps towards sustainable success, much like Stop, Drop and Roll: Educate, Ask, Act. It's almost alliteration! They're traveling across the country on the way to this year's Farm Aid concert in NYC in September, and given the recent passage of a totally inadequate Farm Bill - Nancy Pelosi should be ashamed to call it real reform - it's worth your time and definitely your money to check out what all the amazing SoCal small farmers have to offer. The fantastic blog The Ethicurean has much, much more on the Farm Bill and what it means to citizens. Photo courtesy of The Sustainable Table, via Flickr
