Why take this course now?
The way we eat has a direct impact on climate change and biodiversity loss.
We need to change our current commodity system to a forest food production system, and transition toward local produced and self-subsistent ways of living.
This community course will raise food awareness and build, strengthen and connect food conscious communities and people around the world.
No longer can we act as individuals, as single authors of our lives. We must act as interdependent communities, growing and sharing the earth's nourishment. Change starts when we give back.
