About the Session

Eco-Dharma Talk Series session two.

Come learn how local food can save the world! By shortening the distance between consumers and producers, we structurally encourage diversity on the farm – which in turn means greater productivity, more local livelihoods, more nutritious food and healthier ecosystems.Participants will dive into the spiritual, ecological, and health benefits of participating in local food economies. Take a journey into understanding the benefits of local food. Find out more here:https://www.localfutures.org/films/local-food-can-save-the-world/
