    Michael Pollan states that “it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor.” What are your thoughts on this idea?

    Food is medicine. What we put into our mouths will heal us.

    It is often said that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” What is your response to that statement?

    It needs to feed the world. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Locally-Sourced Meals
    If you were to only eat what is in season locally, what would be the hardest food item for you to give up?

    Leigh Marthe 11/15/2018 4:17 PM
    I think the most difficult thing for me to give up would be fresh berries and avocados.  I freeze berries for winter consumption, but I miss having that fresh fruit.  I also love avocados and know that I would never eat one again if I had to only eat locally in Vermont.
