Nourishing the Planet has had its first Canadian op-ed published in the Vancouver Sun! Co-authored by Slow Food International’s director of international development and Nourishing the Planet Advisory Group member Shayna Bailey and NtP’s co-project director Danielle Nierenberg, the article details how the value and popularity of eating local food is spreading to a global audience.
The op-ed describes the Developing Innovations in School Cultivation (DISC) project in Uganda and Mangeons Local in Senegal and their efforts to help school children learn about local agriculture and the culinary traditions of their countries. With support from organizations like Slow Food International, they are engaging the next generation of farmers.
