Locavore: 100 Miles

LOCAVORE: 100 MILES

The term was first coined in the USA (couldn't you guess). It means to eat only foods grown or harvested within a 100 mile radius of your home. This of course means you'll be eating seasonally. Try theses quests for your next big shop. Just buying a few things doesn't count for this quest - we're after grand gestures!
