A passion and a purpose to uncover traditional but forgotten food, health and lifestyle wisdoms, relinquished for speed and immediacy, but now re-discovered by emerging science.
Our witness to growing material prosperity, yet declining health, unhappiness, dis-connection and intolerance, is speaking loudly. It’s telling us we need to go back.....
Attended an excellent workshop on Saturday about 'Fermenting Foods & Health.' Thank you Isabel, we had a wonderful smoothie this morning, and I have 'burped' my jars and ordered the raw honey! Even better, Trevor thinks the kefir tastes "Ok"...!
