Fifty Shades of Green

The canary in our food-supply mine is dead. Unnoticed but catastrophic changes endanger the Earth's ability to feed our species. It took 50,000 years to reach a human population of one billion in 1830. We soared above six billion people in the year 2000 and passed seven billion in 2012. Wealthy nations eat increasing amounts of meat, while one billion people get less nutrition than the average American house cat.

How One Lecture Made an Ocean of Difference

All the health information in the Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate Program has been invaluable to me in my life and in my work as a writer and conscious lifestyle educator. However, one of the program’s lectures that had the most impact on me personally was actually not about health per se -- it was about a precious resource on our planet.
