Enabling People to Teach Others to Feed Themselves How are we reaching this ambitious goal?ONE ECOPRENEUR AT A TIME!! We are primarily Researchers and Doer/TeachersWhat is a Doer/Teacher? Not your typical High School or College Teacher who has never done what they are teachingWe believe strongly you cannot teach something you have never successfully done.So because we are working with many new or infant technologies, we need to first work with them (do them) before we can teach about themwww.nourishtheplanet.comtext your email to 303-872-4338 for slides and audio 24. Enabling People to Teach Others to Feed Themselves Most of what we are wanting to teach involves farming (in the soil or in the water terrestrial or aquatic) so we believe we need to be successfully using these farming methods and technologies ourselves.If what we are teaching involves home production and personal use then we strongly feel we need to have successfully implemented the technology ourselves.If what we are teaching involves commercial production then we believe we should PROFITABLY and sustainably have operated the program ourselves.www.nourishtheplanet.comtext your email to 303-872-4338 for slides and audio 25.

By 2030 world population will be over 9 billion and it is projected that food will be a critical resource even in wealthy areas of the world, like the US.Traditional industrial agriculture is rapidly depleting limiting resources like Phosphorous, which as they say God aint makin any more.The average distance food comes from today in the US is 1500 miles.Food quality has become so poor that many significant health issues can be directly related to processed and modified foods you eat.www.nourishtheplanet.comtext your email to 303-872-4338 for slides and audio 42. Why Should You Learn How to Feed Yourself? Most Americans are over-weight, due in a large part to the poor quality of their diets.Many Americans under 30 do not even know where their food comes from.Working with living things has been closely tied to improved quality of life, greater happiness, and a better ability to favorably interact with those around you.getting your hands dirty on a regular basis is being closely linked to improved immune system performance, thus more disease resistance.www.nourishtheplanet.comtext your email to 303-872-4338 for slides and audio 43.
