Jocelyn's Actions


Go for a Daily Walk

Walkable Cities

I will take a walk for 20 minutes each day and take note of the infrastructure that makes walking more or less enjoyable, accessible, and possible.


Food, Agriculture, and Land Use

Reduce Animal Products

Plant-Rich Diets

I will enjoy 1 meatless or vegan meal(s) each day of the challenge.


Action Track: Climate Resilience

Support Local Food Systems

Plant-Rich Diets

I will source 10 percent of my food from local producers each day. This could include signing up for a local CSA, buying from a farmer's market, visiting a food co-op, foraging with a local group, or growing my own ingredients.

    I ordered a super cool "tumbling composter" during Earth Week, and it arrived today! Though it took a couple of stressful hours to assemble, it is now ready to go! I am so excited to use my old food to feed my new food :) plus, my neighbors (who try to recycle food items/contaminated materials) are on board with giving me their scraps, so hopefully our recycling will be considerably less polluted.

    Scratch my last post, I figured out how to go back and put in the numbers for my daily actions. Make sure you guys are putting in the numbers and not just checking the boxes, I don't think you get points if you don't input your numbers for your daily actions. Let's get to that leaderboard!

    So I just figured out that you have to input how many minutes you walked, how many meatless meals you've eaten, etc., while doing your daily check ins. Sorry guys, I missed out on a lot of points for just ticking the boxes, I didn't realize I needed to put in additional info for those... at least we get 5 points for me posting this :) hope nobody else makes the same mistake I did...
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Climate Resilience Support Local Food Systems
    Dependable fresh food, supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these (or other) advantages inspire you the most?

    Whenever possible, I try to purchase all of my produce from local farmers if I don't grow it myself. Not only does it feel good to support small business in my area, it tastes better and I know exactly where my food came from, how it was grown and harvested, and who has handled it!
