Thank you for visiting! This blog was inspired to educate youth in informing youth about food, nutrition, health, environmental and social issues affecting us all today. Mostly hoping to educate about the importance of understanding, loving and respecting our precious soil, water and seeds. We are so blessed in Canada, to have beautiful fertile land and mostly clean sparkling water- allowing us to grow plenty of healthy foods and healing herbs.
We are so lucky to have advancements in farm production and distribution.
But I hope that, in this age of everything becoming faster, better, and more advanced, we don’t forget about nature.
~ I hope we don’t value wealth over health ~ and that we consider the true cost of our advancements to the environment, eco system and to our health. As a teen, I’m very concerned about my future and the future of our planet.
I believe that we have to slow down a bit and go back to our roots of sustainable farming, crop diversity and minimized use of harmful Herbicides and pesticides, the way it’s been done for thousands of years.
I strongly belief that we need to fight for our seed freedom, our environment and our basic human right to choose healthy food.
So I encourage everyone, especially the youth to learn more about the food we eat and how it is produced.
“Always leave the earth better than you found it “
Thank you for caring
