Sourcing Health Locally gathers doctors, farmers and eaters in a forum to examine key questions that relate to both health care and agricultural practices. The catastrophic rise in potentially avoidable illness — from autism to Alzheimer’s, diabetes to heart disease, depression to mental illness — relates to changes in our environment and what and how we eat. The solutions lie in close collaborations among the people who grow our food (and our immune systems), prevention-oriented health care practitioners, and us eaters who have the power to choose delicious, whole, real food. Participants will come away with a practical understanding of how to avoid inflammatory diseases and prevent and reverse heart disease, cognitive losses and dementia.
The Northeast Organic Farming Association of NJ and The Suppers Programs partner to provide these workshops. The science will be presented in terms manageable for lay people. The solutions will manifest in the form of absolutely delicious, mostly locally sourced food – the food that heals.
