What’s The Number One Thing We Can Do To Protect Life On Planet Earth?

Posted Jul 08 2010 10:17pm

Fellow Green Mom’s Carnival Blogger Beth Terry posed this HUGE question to our group the other day.

She asked — What is the number one thing we can do to protect life on planet earth?

An interesting conversation thread followed.

If I had to decide just one thing to protect our planet earth — I’d say feed it.

By that I mean clean up the whole food thing.

To me that means no one is hungry ever and we get back to the basics – slow food, scratch cooking, dinner together every day, a deeper understanding of local and seasonal – food that is clean, nutritious and plentiful

Such a simplistic thought

Not a simple task by any means.

I certainly wouldn’t know where to start either

For me when I think about what I advocate most passionately I always come back to food and nutrition.

I could do better

I could learn more

I could teach more

This is where my number one thing we can do to protect life on the planet has a bit of a Part B

We all might want to step in and get involved.

Get grassroots again!

Learn, share, talk, meet others who might be on the same page

Tonight I attended a meeting where local farmers, foodies, restraunt owners, educators, government and economic development councils came together for a like minded cause.

To bring a Food Innovation Center to Central Illinois.

I had heard the frustrated farmer farm to school carrot story mentioned in the newspaper today once before.

When someone shared with me the details of tonight’s meeting I felt I had to attend.

I am completely fascinated by the project!!
