Motivating Issue

Water and food. They’re interrelated, of course. A lot of our problems start with the use of petroleum-based chemicals on our food, and those get washed into the water supply. If we get our food system right, that will solve a lot of issues.

Why I Belong To MEIC

What I Want To Pass On
