Halcyon In Kal… 31 July 2020

 

“This is happiness,” Willa Cather’s fictional narrator gasps as he sinks into his grandmother’s garden, “to be dissolved into something complete and great.” A generation later, in a real-life counterpart, Virginia Woolf arrived at the greatest epiphany of her life  - and to this day perhaps the finest definition of what it takes to be an artist - while contemplating the completeness and greatness abloom in the garden.

Halcyon Impacts 1 January 2018

 

Please see below change concerning the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Goal 2 to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

 

Poor nutrition causes 45% of deaths in kids under five each year.

The depth of the food deficit (in kilocalories per person per day) remains very serious in many parts of the world.

A result of poor diets over long periods is a retardation of growth – the height of children is too small for their age. This is referred to as stunted growth. Children with stunted growth are at greater risk for illness and death.

 

On Meat

Beef

Our current meat-heavy system of food production seems to many unsustainable, a waste of resources and a source of pollution in the form of pesticides and hormones as well as methane gas from livestock manure.

Quote 2361

Food is the rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure - Barbara Kingsolver
