Picnic for the Planet

In about a month, we will celebrate Earth Day (April 22).  This year The Nature Conservancy is celebrating Earth Day by highlighting the food we eat.  Groups are being organized all around the world for a global Picnic for the Planet.

I am working on getting a picnic event right here in Lansing, MI.  It will be at the Lansing City Market on April 22nd from 11:30 to 1:30.  More details on the event will come shortly!  Check out the meetup group here: 
In the meantime, mark your calendars for April 22, eat locally, support restaurants that use local or sustainable foods...and go have a picnic!

I will be highlighting foods and recipes native to Michigan here on this blog, so if you have any good suggestions for me please share!
