"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"

How can we help prevent further climate change just by changing the way we eat?
How will getting my hands dirty in the garden affect my grip on life, my stake in repairing our planet home?
What changes in my personal lifestyle and that of my family can I make? Who will benefit?
How do spiritual insights from various faith traditions inform and inspire this work?
What practices will put me more in touch with divine and anchor me more deeply in the Sacred Earth Community

What I (and we) eat matters.
