The bestselling coauthor of Your Money or Your Life chronicles her quest to eat food produced within 10 miles of her home. Taking the locavore movement to heart, bestselling author and social innovator Vicki Robin pledged for one month to eat only food sourced within a 10-mile radius of her home on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, Washington. Her sustainable diet not only brings to light society's unhealthy dependency on mass-produced, prepackaged foods but also helps her reconnect with her body and her environment.

Robin has been at the forefront of the sustainable living movement. She has received awards from Co-Op America and Sustainable Northwest and was profiled in Utne Magazine's book Visionaries: People and Ideas to Change Your Life. She lives on Whidbey Island in Washington.
 
This event is co-sponsored by the Community Food Co-op, Sustainable Connections, and Transition Whatcom.
