  • Reflection Question
    Food Watch a Documentary about Food Sovereignty
    How does food sovereignty address the complex transition from localized food systems to modern global food systems?

    Joely Stoller's avatar
    Joely Stoller 10/21/2020 5:36 PM
    Local food systems are a lot easier to access and manipulate in comparison to a global scale.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Forage for My Food
    People are motivated to forage for many different reasons: as a source for food, a means of income, to connect with nature, to participate in cultural tradition, transmitting specific ecological knowledge, or as a means of stewarding local and native plant populations are just a few examples. What is your chief motivation for foraging?

    Joely Stoller's avatar
    Joely Stoller 10/20/2020 11:17 AM
    Chief motivation for foraging is to be able to obtain more and save money, while also being able to enjoy nature while doing it.
