Sustainable Food 101: Week One, Food, Inc.


We just had a chance to watch Food, Inc. this evening and let me just say it was a real eye-opener. Am I ever glad that we are able to raise a good bit of our own meat, eggs, milk and even some produce!

I stumbled across "A Five Week Crash Course in Sustainable Food" over at change.org and think I'll work my way through their suggested Sustainable Food 101 syllabus. I've got the first week done and was pleased to see on the online catalog for my local library that they have In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto available.

Have you seen this movie yet? I'd love to hear what you thought of it.

I am reading FOOD MATTERS and only a couple of chapters into it, I am starting to think a lot about our food. Looking forward to growing lots of our own this summer!

I watched that movie and it changed my life for the better. I will never look at food the same again, its something you would never ever know is happening. You've got to see it. But afterwards you'll want to invest your time and energy into growing and raising your own food!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
