Listen and Learn

Communication is the solution to bring those against or unable to eat local food and those who support eating local together. Through ample communication people can start discussions regarding the various difficulties of eating local like monetary implications, geographical struggles, and availability.

Money is a important factor in most peoples lives. It fuels their daily routine. When it comes to eating local, the expenses can be greater than what some people are willing to spend. However, with communication, people can become aware of cheaper local alternatives or new places that may offer a better price for the local food. Direct monetary statistics can be found of those who commit to eating local.

For regions that do not produce a specific good, people can communicate about new local substitutions that they have discovered to fill in the void of the non-local good. Adaptation and compromise are necessary qualities that locavores must undertake. If they are committed to eating local, they may have to choose to make a different dish than if they could source global ingredients. The ease of eating local can depend on how large you draw your local circle. For example, if you were to adopt the locavore movement in Chapel Hill, the normal 100-mile radius would include various surrounding towns and cities, like Durham, Raleigh, Hillsborough, Mebane, and more. This offers a wide variety and many choices of sprouts.

Communication is a necessary ingredient in the local food life. People must be eager to listen and discuss in order to successfully live a healthy, local life.
