And Fair Food Forager.
There it is, shelter, water, energy and food. Things that we all need, things that heavily impact the environment. Fantastic information and insights for all to soak up.
Personally, I love talking to groups of people who give up their time to learn about or help the environment. I love the enthusiasm. The appreciation for the natural world, and what makes this planet amazing. The vistas, sounds, smells and the wonder of a system of which we are just a one part.
But one of my favourite things in nature. A tree frog.
I think this love of the planet creates a realisation that we are all connected, in the air we breathe, the water in our bodies and the minerals that build our cells. There are no races or country borders in that world, just organisms needing the same elements for survival.
Talking to a group of people who realise we can, through our actions make a real difference, whether that is by sharing our knowledge or using our labour. We can leave the place better than we found it.
The speakers could have talked about anything that night, because those who care about the planet, get it. We all have the power to change the world, in our case, tackling foods contribution is the method, and why not? We all eat!
Thanks Megan Rowlett for putting the event together.
