This plunge will dive into the growing local food movement in Dayton. Participants will look at the benefits and challenges to growing local food through visits to a few urban farms, gardens, markets and discussions with the farmers themselves. Plungers will also get their hands dirty by helping out with needed tasks. Meals on this plunge will include the fruits of local labors. Discussion and reflection on food justice, distribution, and the environmental impact of growing and shipping food will provide plungers with a starting point to act toward a more just system and to re-evaluate their own food choices.
