The way we eat impacts both people and the planet. ‘good’ food serves up climate justice, social justice, gender equity, healthy biodiversity, community, health, and enjoyment. Our modern food system sings a much different tune, one of disease, destruction and ecological degradation.. 

We will explore why, and what we can do about it. What choices can we make to shift the needle towards sustainability? What would your next meal look like with those choices? In this panel, we’ve brought together leading thinkers, do-ers and farmers working to make our food systems better, both for people, and the planet. To bring this conversation home, Laura Christie Khanna will guide everyone to grow food themselves by making a DIY self-watering garden, using upcycled plastic bottles.
