She asked — What is the number one thing we can do to protect life on planet earth?
An interesting conversation thread followed.
If I had to decide just one thing to protect our planet earth — I’d say feed it.
By that I mean clean up the whole food thing.
To me that means no one is hungry ever and we get back to the basics – slow food, scratch cooking, dinner together every day, a deeper understanding of local and seasonal – food that is clean, nutritious and plentiful
Such a simplistic thought
Not a simple task by any means.
I certainly wouldn’t know where to start either
For me when I think about what I advocate most passionately I always come back to food and nutrition.
I could do better
I could learn more
I could teach more
This is where my number one thing we can do to protect life on the planet has a bit of a Part B
We all might want to step in and get involved.
Get grassroots again!
Learn, share, talk, meet others who might be on the same page
Tonight I attended a meeting where local farmers, foodies, restraunt owners, educators, government and economic development councils came together for a like minded cause.
To bring a Food Innovation Center to Central Illinois.
I had heard the frustrated farmer farm to school carrot story mentioned in the newspaper today once before.
When someone shared with me the details of tonight’s meeting I felt I had to attend.
I am completely fascinated by the project!!
