Evening Talk #2: Prescribing from the food forest - May 18th - 7pm

This BC physician shares her experience both through anecdote and the 
latest science on the healing value of locally grown, nutrient rich 
food. Having lived and worked half of her life in Sub- Saharan Africa 
she compares the malnutrition issues in so -called developing countries 
to the very real malnutrition epidemic of metabolic syndrome, heart 
disease, stroke and cancer that we in Canada are challenged by. She 
demystifies the theories around the causes of these illnesses and gives 
good evidence to the fact that, at its core, the roots of this is 
nutritional deficiency is conventional food. As a psychotherapist she 
underscores the empowerment that food autonomy gives to individuals, 
communities and societies.
