Food

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

Quote 2360

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants - Michael Pollan

Inspired by local food communities

In Todmorden, Yorkshire, vegetables and herbs grow almost everywhere, even in the cemetery and outside the police station.  Everywhere you turn edible plants abound. In this talk given at TED London Salon, Pam Warhurst explained why and how she and others created Incredible Edible, a revolution not only in the way the town eats, but also in the way they think about public space, and which is inspiring other communites around the UK and increasingly, around the world.
