Sustainable food production has a huge impact on resilient living. It has a positive affect on resource management, toxin levels, pollinator populations, and greenhouse gas emissions. Plus, more and more research is reinforcing the concept that “food is medicine” – meaning, that the food you eat goes a long way in determining your health.
