Dear Friends — I’m on a flight now leaving Boston. And it’s a bittersweet goodbye.
Four years ago today, it was the start of a long winter, and I was overwhelmed. I had no path forward, no sense of a meaningful way to use my energies to seek the changes I wished to see. As I wallowed in that rut, I began to revisit a past dream I’d had, of reconnecting communities through food by engaging with it at its source — by digging in and getting dirty, to understand the roots of interdependence.

ALL LIFE IS INTERRELATED
“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny.
