Lucy, Kirsty and Steve from Transition Ipswich blogged about their experiences doing the challenge in 2012 – see their individual pages below for their updates. We hope they’ll continue in 2013!
Other great blogs from participants past and present include…
The original 30 Mile Challenge trailblazer from Framlingham, Martha, wrote a brilliant blog in 2011 – check it out, here.
Libby from Waldringfield blogged about the challenge in her 3030 Walders blog in 2012 – have a look at what she got up to here.
This year one of our facebook followers Andy is also blogging about his efforts – check it out here.
Dave from Transition Ipswich will be writing about local food, including his research on local food and wellbeing, in his ‘we are what we eat’ blog – check it out here.
We also have an interested blogger in the making called Gabby who we hope can contribute to the website this year – watch this space 🙂
Lucy’s blog: Lucy is our producer guru and has done a lot of the research about where our producers are and how to get hold of their produce. She’s a great cook and is experimenting with lots of local ingredients, including how make meals for an affordable cost. She’s blogging about doing the challenge as an omnivore, and will be talking about some of the events we’ve got coming up.
Kirsty’s blog: Kirsty is blogging about doing the challenge as a vegetarian, including the trials and tribulations of finding local dairy products in Suffolk – once abundant but now few and far between. She’s also interested in the ‘grow local’ side of the challenge, so will be blogging about some of the community food growing projects she supports through her work, and how they can supply local food to their volunteers.
Steve’s blog: Steve describes himself as being unprepared for the challenge and unable to cook anything too complicated – if he can do it, anyone can! Steve’s a great example of an enthusiast willing to take on a real challenge. Living in central Ipswich and working full time, if Steve can find time to do a bit of his own research, adapt his shopping habits, and try out new cooking challenges, we’re confident many more of you can too!
