Food For Thought - In this section we explore how the food we eat impacts on our bodies, our minds and our ecosystems. Food is central to our culture and it plays a huge role in our health and the health of the environment. Which foods, where they comes from, how it is grown and how it gets to our table, and what are its environmental impacts are all questions we ask as we explore optimal food production, distributioin and preparation in our society. We look at sustainable agriculture practices, the edible wild food sources, preserving and preparing food as well as diets for a healthy environment and a healthy body. Food For Thought is provided to help us all think before we eat.
