Local food

Published Categorized as english

One of the nice things about hosting a retreat where we eat local food, is that I can go wild in shopping at markets. That is the place to get all the local food that is available. Sadly plastic bags are still common here, but when I bring Judith along, the older grandma’s know it already: Judith refuses the plastic bags and gives her home made bags, from rest material. It certainly gives a smile where ever we go.

Enjoy the pictures:

Along farmers and over markets. And sometimes its where they meet: This women lives at a farm, where they produce lavender. She makes soap and other products. I told her about the women who I soon will meet for a long weekend. And how we aim for as many local products as possible, during the weekend. And her reply: Encouraging! Life here is not easy, after all.
