What if the solutions for healthier people + a healthier planet were one and the same?
What if we chose to cultivate health and flourishing in kitchens + gardens + around tables?
What if health was more collaborative than competitive? More about the health of the community than the diagnosis of an individual?
What if we could hold together today's nutritional knowledge with the nourishing wisdom and traditional skills passed down by women?
“The earth, the first among good mothers, gives us the gift that we cannot provide for ourselves."
"Even a wounded world is feeding us. Even a wounded world holds us, giving us moments of wonder and joy. I choose joy over despair. Not because I have my head in the sand, but because joy is what the earth gives me daily and I must return the gift.”
"As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.”
