"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree"

Martin Luther


Healthy food cannot be solely defined by nutrient content.

It should be the end result of a food system that;

* conserves and renews natural resources

* advances social justice and animal welfare

* builds community wealth

* fulfils the nutritional requirements of the global population

now and into the future

This website and blog is about sharing nutritional perspectives of how to protect global ecosystems whilst feeding the world.
