Milwaukee locavores have known about restaurants that source food locally. A new wave of locavores will hit the Milwaukee farmers markets and Natural food stores during the Eat Local Challenge. Want to know the rules? There are no rules. You decide how to eat more local foods.
The point is to challenge yourself – to see what you can live without and what new sources of foods you can find – and to enjoy. It’s really about thinking local first, doing what you can – and looking for local alternatives that support our communities and economy. Even small changes made over a period of time can have an impact.

What others are saying about Every Natural Fact:
“Any reader drawn to the outdoors will cherish Every Natural Fact and its author’s sensual intelligence potted in the fertile soil of a boundless curiosity for the world. Amy Lou Jenkins is the Anna Quindlen of the north woods, the Rachel Carson of the good land of Wisconsin, bequeathing to her son and to all of us an indestructible sense of wonder.” — Bob Shacochis, National Book Award-winning author of Easy in the Islands and The Immaculate Invasion
“Braiding together history, memoir, gentle parenting guidance, and superb nature writing, Jenkins’ prose illuminates the details of ordinary life.”—Susan Cheever, author of American Bloomsbury
“Wisconsin’s wild areas become the world in extraordinary debut by Amy Lou Jenkins’ ‘Every Natural Fact’ is nothing less than sensational.” —Pamela Miller, Minneapolis Star Tribune.
“If you combined the lyricism of Annie Dillard, the vision of Aldo Leopold, and the gentle but tough-minded optimism of Frank McCourt, you might come close to Amy Lou Jenkins, a writer who obliterates the distinction between regional writing and actual, honest-to-god writing. I, for one, would follow her anywhere.”—Tom Bissell, author of The Father of All Things and Extra Lives
