LEARN2-Food Security In California

Having Researched Food security issues in my state of California, the results are startling.

Imagine1

The year is 2020. I am sitting down to a meal of bok choy, cabbage, eggplant and rice. I am in rural China, with my organization of spiritual warrior monks. The water sources in the areas area all badly polluted, so we have had to purchase an advanced reverse osmosis system to clean our water. The system is the only one of its kind for miles, so many nearby villages send people to us to gather water. We are doing the best we can to provide for everyone while also charging a modest fee for the… Continue

ACT1

Shadowing a hero doing big things: Eben Bayer and his company Ecovative.



As we are all becoming aware, landfill space is running out and this requires major changes in the way we do packaging as a society. Eben has created an innovative replacement to styrofoam, based on the biological properties of fungi. His product is an excellent packaging device with the same basic properties of stryofoam, yet it uses 90 percent less energy to create AND is biodegradable.

LEARN1-Among the People

"Problems are not always obvious from afar."



As we look at our world, as we analyze the challenges faced by certain regions, its very important that we refrain from assuming cookie cutter solutions will actually work on the ground. That is why living among the people is a critical component of problem solving in unfamiliar areas.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
