Our first night back in Portland after Iceland and Tokyo, my wife and I decide to go out instead of cook.
We head to the New Grub Cafe. It's a part Resilient Food Systems International, a co-op of cafe/food-producer operations. Member groups run cafes that serve food they've either produced themselves or traded with other co-op members for and transported using carbon-negative transit systems. Most employ green roofs and a network of city-wide small garden patches in the oddest places.
After seating ourselves, we're served a four course meal, consisting primarily of locally grown vegetables, mushrooms, and legumes. For desert, we're also served a raw vegan chocolate mouse made with avocados, agave nectar, and cocoa grown in Mexico and brought back to Oregon on a carbon-negative "green boat" (wind and solar powered floating gardens/cargo ships).
