  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    Many people say that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” How would you respond to that statement?

    In an ideal world where we buy, sell, and trade locally and in season, I believe that informed consumers could have the means to at the very least, feed themselves and their families on solely organic foods, but this takes some serious commitment with the plethora of tempting indulgences that are plentiful and tasty.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Locally-Sourced Meals
    If you were to only eat what is in season locally from now on, what would be the most difficult food item for you to give up? Why?

    I believe that foods are at their best when they are in season.  I prefer to consume fruits and vegetables when they are at this optimal level, and sometimes fresh frozen is a good way to get what you want in the off season.

    Turning off lights, power when not in use is becoming like second nature.  Also, starting to go out of my way to pick up litter outside, simple and meaningful!
