    I started this month's challenge hoping to connect with like-minded teammates as well as work on concrete steps to reduce my carbon, water and energy footprint. I feel like I have made progress on all these fronts this month, but this is just the beginning, and I will need to keep the momentum and learning going!

    Health & Equity Learn About Equitable Food Access
    How is food equity and access linked to a sustainable future?

    Food equity and access is directly dependent on the ability to increase and improve food security, and improving food security cannot be done solely by increasing agricultural output. Rather a systematic approach is needed - a core concept of such a systematic approach would be that food systems be democratically controlled and community stakeholders invest in and support a community food system. A community food system by definition is sustainable because it involves working within the context of a soil-to-soil system that enables the end-to-end production, distribution, processing, access, food consumption, and food waste management.

    I have been walking to places that are close by instead of driving each time, especially to stores that are within the same block or around the same parking lot.

    Through this challenge and the weekly chats, I've learned so many new ways to improve how I behave, consume, and interact with my environment. It was so much fun meeting other people with likeminded ideals!

    Most excited to visit the local climbing walls and find new camping spots during our staycation. Eventually most excited to go whale watching soon off the coast of this wonderful state!

    What was it like to practice mindfulness? If this is a practice for you already, what was something new you understood in practicing during Earth Month?

    Something I've always dabbled with in and out, setting goals and this time to focus during earth month has reminded me that checking in with myself and prioritizing my health has benefits everywhere.

    Two of the tastiest sustainable seafood meals I've ever had, one was off a boat in Mauritius where the guides spearfished and roasted them on sticks over a fire. The other was from eating and Sushi Kashiba in Washington that uses sustainable and locally caught fish.

    Education & Livelihood Work-Life Balance
    How does practicing a work-life balance create a more sustainable life for you? How might it contribute to sustainability more broadly?

    Today I celebrated a work-life balance by setting some time aside to go to the rock climbing gym. Getting on the wall and focusing on not only the physical challenge but also mental challenge of climbing while appreciating the balance between strength and movement that is needed to reach the top of the wall helps me reset. By resetting I can check in with myself mentally and emotionally and avoid burnout at work. By showing up for myself and allow the space to show up for others.
