Transition Sarasota's Eat Local Week is an annual, week-long celebration of the best of local food and farming in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Each year, dozens of partners come together to offer dozens of events: farm and garden tours, farm-to-fork dinners, "reskilling" workshops, educational programs, hands-on activities, and more.

Our sixth annual Eat Local Week will take place Monday, October 24th through Sunday, October 30th, 2016. This year's theme will be "Food Changes Everything," and will explore the interconnections between food and topics as diverse as water, energy, finance, biodiversity, soil fertility, culture, public policy, education, the economy, health, art, land use, and social justice. 

If you are interested in participating in this year's events as an organizer, sponsor, or volunteer, email us at or call (941) 408-3374. Regular planning meetings will begin in May.
