Let the games begin: One Local Summer

Monday, May 26, 2008


The deadline for registration for One Local Summer has now closed.  2008 is going to be an exciting year for the challenge - we have 136 participants!  30 states in the U.S. are represented, plus there are a few Canadians participating this year as well as several people from France and the UK.  Outstanding!

The rules and other important information (please read: some of it is different from last year!):

  1. The challenge will begin on Sunday, June 1 and run until Sunday, August 31.  Your challenge: prepare one meal each week using only locally grown ingredients - the exceptions are oil, salt and pepper, and spices.  Please note: the first update/recap of meals will appear on this site on Tuesday, June 10.
  2. Each region has one or two regional coordinators.  Participants should have received an email with the name of their regional coordinator.
  3. On SUNDAY of every week during the challenge, please email your regional coordinator the URL of any OLS posts on your blog or Flickr account.  Or, if you have neither, email your regional coordinator your update on Sunday. Updates will appear on the Farm to Philly blog every TUESDAY.  If you do not get your update emailed by Sunday, you can post your update in the comments section for your region’s update.
  4. If you would like a One Local Summer button for your blog, there are three available here.
  5. When you come to the Farm to Philly site, there’s an easy way to find all One Local Summer entries - look in the far left column under ‘Categories’ and click the link that says ‘One Local Summer’.

We at Farm to Philly are very excited to be hosting One Local Summer this year!  And I’m grateful to all the regional coordinators and those that volunteered to be back ups to the regional coordinators - thank you so much!
