Food gives life. At the Positive Change Project, we believe that sustainable and consistent access to good nutritious food can and already does change lives. And it turns out that there are already a whole slew of people who are committed to keeping the sustainable food movement going and growing. Here are just a few of the great resources I’ve found:
Food Curated: Some of the most interesting stories of people making and growing real food in and around NYC, all in video. Hey, if a concrete jungle like New York can go sustainable, shouldn’t everywhere be able to?
Local Harvest: Ever wondered how you can get a food box from a local CSA or where the nearest Farmer’s Market is? Well here’s your resource. Some of the most useful information available online!
Sustainable Table: This is the biggie. Sustainable Table promotes the positive shift toward local, small-scale sustainable farming. It has a wealth of information about sustainability, why its important and how to get involved in the movement.
The Sada Project was our first chance to see just how important good food is to those in need. Through your generous support we have been able to plant two gardens that grow seasonal food in a sustainable way for the 12 AIDS orphans in Sada. It has been incredible to see the impact that access to food, something that seems all too easy to get a hold of for most of us has had. It has literally changed the lives of these amazing kids. Now they can go to school with full bellies and not be distracted by wondering where their next meal will come from. Plus, this food is being provided to them through a local village market and their very own gardens that they care for, so the risk of someday not being able to have that food is extremely low. How cool is that?
We are obsessed with sustainability at the Positive Change Project. If you have any other great online resources, let us know!
