  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    We don’t waste any food as we have dogs so if something is about to go off, we can mix it up for the doggys who are very good eaters and not picky at all.

    Room for improvement.  Always good to be reminded.
