Weekly Whatcom Locavore Column in Bellingham Herald


Category : Whatcom Locavore Basics

Photo of Bellingham HeraldThe contract is signed and it’s official! The Bellingham Herald will be publishing a weekly Whatcom Locavore column starting Tuesday, May 4! Just as on this blog, I’ll be doing the writing and the articles will each include one of Joan’s photos.

Weekly columns will feature a seasonal ingredient, a farm or food producer, or other timely information about eating locally, along with one of the weekly recipes from this blog and a mouthwatering photo of the dish. The Herald will publish the column both in the newspaper and their online website. They asked for a one year commitment.

Hopefully this will help spread the word that local eating can be fun, easy, healthy and delicious. Please help spread the word, and let me know if there’s a topic you’d like to see featured.

Note: First column available at Bellingham Herald online:
