Science proves that healthy soil grows healthy food and healthy food nourishes healthy people. However, extreme soil erosion, depleted aquifers and decreased biodiversity threatens the safety, quality and biodiversity of the food supply. Diet-related chronic disease rates are rising, medical expenditures are skyrocketing and researchers predict that children will have a shorter lifespan than their parents. An ecological approach to food, nutrition and health is the solution to creating a food system that conserves and renews natural resources, advances social justice and animal welfare, builds community wealth and fulfills the food and nutrition needs of all eaters now and in the future.
Healthy soil, healthy food and healthy eaters—nourishing our natural resources is the optimal health insurance plan!
