Systems

Looking at the Big Picture

Seasonality

Reconnecting With Food

In this lesson, you'll build on your understanding of local food systems by learning about seasonal eating.

As you'll discover, seasonal eating is the best way we can connect back with nature, get creative in the kitchen and have the lowest possible impact on the environment.

Regeneration

Changing Practices in Our Food System

These amazing practices not only pull carbon from the atmosphere but provide huge benefits to the farmers and their crops themselves.

At the end of this lesson, you'll watch a Case Study about Brookfarm, a leading Australian food producer committed to regenerative agriculture and community development.
