Interesting insight into the decline of nutritional qualities of food

The atmosphere is literally changing the food we eat, for the worse. And almost nobody is paying attention.

Just attended this awe inspiring course delivered by extraordinary facilitators. Some of the most refined successional food forest work developed in very similar climatic regions and ecology in Brazil. It's an incredible opportunity to connect with these Brazilians while they are here in Byron. If u want to get skilled up in subtropical food polyculture, inspired by group action and learn more about the landless movement in Brazil that is reclaiming degraded industrial farmlands and turning them into food forests with food, home and income for many, then this where it's at.
