Menu for the Future - A NWEI Discussion Course

I'm really excited! Last night marked the beginning of my second Northwest Earth Institute Discussion Course: Menu for the Future.

If you've never taken one of their courses, be on the lookout for one in your area or better yet, coordinate one yourself. I hosted one last summer (Voluntary Simplicity) and loved it. I'm looking forward to learning even more from the many lessons, wisdom from experts in the field of sustainable food. And with chapter titles like What's Eating America, Anonymous Food, Farming for the Future, You are What you Eat, Toward a Just Food System, and Choices for Change, I'm practically salivating at the possibilities (sorry, pun intended...).

We have a great group of 6 people, which includes my housemate (great for carpooling...). Truly, the best part about these groups are the many perspectives coming together to talk about a single issue. We all learn from each other, broadening our horizons and strengthening our desire to make the world a better place.

Interested in getting involved in one of the NWEI's 8 discussion courses? Check out their website and find (or make your own) group today!

Anyone else out there taken a NWEI course? Which one? What did you think?
