I'm compiling a list of local food challenges that are in progress, planned,
or in planning.  Also welcomed are ones where your group would like to do
one, but hasn't decided on the details yet.

Any of the following info that's available would be useful:
Name and description of challenge
When challenge will occur (or the times you are trying to decide between)
Main location of challenge
Perameters of challenge (100 miles from the center of San Franciso, Any food
grown or produced in Oklahoma, Any food grown or produced in Madison County,
Food produced within 10 miles of the participant's house)
Contact info for the challenge
Email lists, forums, or websites for the challenge
Highlights of possible or probable challenge activities (such as
  * Heirloom tomato tasting
  *Web based directory and index to local foods
  *Pot luck meal where every dish has some apples in it
  *Field trips to interesting local food places
  *Local complete diet food garden designs
  *Garden builds
  *Presentations at Farmer's Markets )

For complete diet gardens, info about where info on the complete diet garden
plan info is located would be appreciated.  A complete diet plan is one
designed to grow all the nutrients a person needs, ideally in a sustainable

I'll compile and organize the info and send a copy back to the list.
