The bestselling coauthor of Your Money or Your Life chronicles her quest to eat food produced within 10 miles of her home in her new book, "Blessing the Hands that Feed Us; what eating closer to home can teach us about food, community and our place on earth." Taking the locavore movement to heart, bestselling author and social innovator Vicki Robin pledged for one month to eat only food sourced within a 10-mile radius of her home on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, Washington. Her sustainable diet not only brings to light society's unhealthy dependency on mass-produced, prepackaged foods but also helps her reconnect with her body and her environment.
Vicki has helped launch many sustainability initiatives including: The New Road Map Foundation, The Simplicity Forum, The Turning Tide Coalition, Sustainable Seattle, The Center for a New American Dream, Transition Whidbey and more. In the 1990’s she served on the President’s Council on Sustainable Development’s Task Force on Population and Consumption.
Vicki has served on the board for Transition U.S. and was a keynote speaker at TW's Great Unleashing. Transition Whatcom is co-sponsoring this event.
