Through meeting many other people who volunteer and run non-governmental organizations in Africa and around the world, a book club was born! In December 2011,┬áduring Terra Madre day (Slow Food International), we had to come up with a name for our group. That’s where Locavores Gone Global came from.

During all of our discussions about international development issues, one theme is pervasive: food. Our food system has massive impacts not only on the planet but on the people who live around the world. In an effort to live our lives so that we are not contributing to the problems we are trying to solve, we are eating locally, planting gardens and connective with others.
