Potsdam, NY, Mar 14, 2012 — Amy Cotler is an author, chef and local food advocate, who says it's an exciting time for the locavore movement, but more needs to be done. Cotler is author of the book, The Locavore Way, which focuses on the pleasures of locally grown food. On Monday, she'll give the keynote address at Dig In!, a food and gardening conference at Clarkson University in Potsdam. The event will bring together school staff, educators, parents, business owners, community leaders and health professionals.
Amy Cotler told Todd Moe that most schools, businesses and places of worship are doing a good job of developing and sustaining effective local food-based policies and practices, but, she says, they're just "scratching the surface".
