<nettime-ann> [art] Local Food

Hello all.
If you would like to join an online demonstration, your words will be 
part of a 2 year traveling exhibition:


FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of 
consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the 
environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of 
a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see 
in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a 
product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, an website, and a 
traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people 
about alternative food systems and local food movements.  The 
wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking 
on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and 
into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a 
variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban 
farming. Get your daily dose!

Remember to fill out the survey and add your urban plan dreams!!
