Could YOU live on foods only grown in Ireland for a month each year? Lisa Fingleton is the author of The Local Food Project, based on her 30-day Local Food Challenge: Each September she invites people to try eating only food grown in Ireland. Her partner Rena Blake is the North Kerry co-ordinator for Kerry Social Farming. Together they live on a 20 acre organic smallholding called Barna, where they try to embody the saying “be the change you want to see in the world.”

The Local Food Project explores the power of growing and eating local food. Incorporating drawings, photography and text, the book is the culmination of three years of work. The book is creatively presented in journal style and is filled with ideas and actions for people who think global and want to act local.
