Locavore News distributes three or four newsletters per week. The target routine is:
- Locavore News — World on Mondays
- Locavore News — Canada on Tuesdays (sometimes)
- Locavore News — Ontario on Wednesday
- Locavore News — Events on Fridays (cancelled)
- Locavore News — Special Events or Issues (from time to time)
To add your email address to the Locavore News distribution list, send an email to: Plumblinefirstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an edited newsletter. We limit the list to one newsletters per day with priority given to items about locally grown food and near-urban agriculture. The uniqueness of the story/website/report/event matters a lot. It is not intended to be timely or comprehensive. Our goal is to support possibility thinking.
Submissions are welcome at Plumblinehome@terracoeur.ca. Required format for submissions is a short descriptive paragraph (50 to 60 words) with a website link for details. Inclusion is not guaranteed. Providing the information in the above format increases the likelihood of inclusion. We do not attach documents. Locavore News — Events is on hold due to time constraints.
