Zero Mile Diet Anywhere

The zero-mile diet is the best - it's local, organic, and fresh!

The zero-mile concept is at work at Rawganique. We like to eat from where we live, so now that we're here at the Rawganique office all the time while setting up the new retail store and cafe, we created an organic garden that we can eat our meals from. We have lots of organic greens and root veggies of all types, plus organic fruits galore - strawberries, blueberries, figs, peaches, cherries, plums, apples, pears, depending on the season. Love love love fresh foods!

Zero mile diet idea derives from the 100-mile diet concept, where you eat local, either from your garden or from the farmers' market. Zero-mile diet takes this one big step further and stipulates that you use all available space around you to grow foods and eat from your own backyard, as it were, as much as possible. No driving needed. When you need food, just stroll out the door and harvest. Indoor greens and herbs as well as wheatgrass are a big part of the zero-mile diet as well. Local and fresh at its best.

We have a big parking lot here at Rawganique, more than we ever need, so we converted a part of it into an organic garden. Now the garden is lush and productive - we get fresh organic ingredients, from kale, lettuce, chard, spinach, claytonia, minutina, to strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and more for our meals. Happy gardening, no matter where you are, no matter what space you have.
