  • Reflection Question
    Food Watch a Documentary about Food Sovereignty
    How does food sovereignty address the complex agrarian transition to modern food systems?

    brianna fehrer 11/14/2019 1:43 PM
    food sovereignty is having access to healthy cultural food grown in the way the people want. the way we cultivate land is very complex and food systems now are very modernized.

  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Have a Garage Sale
    Building community is good for your soul and fun to do! What were some of the positive outcomes that came out of your group garage sale?

    brianna fehrer 11/05/2019 1:38 PM
    I left 2 big boxes of stuff for my parents to sell at their next garage sale and they finally had it about a week ago. you get to meet more people in your community and people can buy second hand items at a low price and give it a new meaning. I've also donated some clothes while I've been here.

    I care about all ecological problems but I think I'm called to work on ecological problems in the ocean more. why I am majoring in marine biology.

  • Reflection Question
    Community Support Native Communities
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    brianna fehrer 11/05/2019 1:28 PM
    balance is important to sustainability because living sustainably is living in balance, you need to know how to keep your checks and balances to keep everything moving and on track.
