OpenIDEATOR, Paul Keys, tells us about how the Local Food Challenge inspired action in his life – to take on a role on his local farmers' market committee.
 
"OpenIDEO transformed me from a casual observer to an active, engaged participant in my local Farmers' Market and the wider community that it breathes life into. I had enjoyed the buzz around the market here in Timaru, South Island, New Zealand – and wanted in a small way to spread the message. Despite having no expertise around developing ideas into actions, the way OpenIDEO is constructed to build inspirations forward into collaborative discussions has carried me along to where I am now a member of the market committee – listening to the producers and consumers and taking action!"
 
"Even though I am already involved locally through my role as a a medical General Practitioner – now I'm helping out in my community in a new way – and seeing how my community pays it back through embracing my family and showing that we belong. In a couple of months, my local, offline collaboration map would have new branches extending to environmental groups, charity organisations, local authorites... all doors opening with ease, aided by the OpenIDEO community being so willing with their time and ideas."

I have long believed in organic and locally grown produce/ food. Having moved from the US to Malaysia drove me to change and refine how I eat ( big change of vegetation ), and I discovered a new way of eating. The organic store I shop in receive their produce shipment directly from farms 3 times a week and the veg were just pulled out 2 days before. You get what the farmers harvested and only harvest choices. That it. And because these are organic farmers they have to practice rotational planting and what's good for the soil. there is not much of a choice and it has stopped being what I felt like eating. So I started creating recipes or looking for recipes only utilizing the produce obtained that day. Wouldnt it be great to have mobile apps that are fully aligned with farmers harvest and delivered recipes based on harvested produce or meat to customers who signed up to support those local farmers? That will be true alignment to the earth!
