Eating well and Living Well
Over 10 Saturdays, we will unearth the role of soil in our ecology and question how best to graze the grass and farm protein. We will unpack the impact of our industrialised food system on our daily bread, our nutrition and health. We will grapple with the big numbers and small actions on carbon emissions and food waste. We will assess our impact on our fellow species, whether they be walking, swimming or flying, and imagine how to better use our land.
Day 8 will explore Scotland’s historical relationship with her land, its impact on our diet and the ways in which the Guide Scots Diet has changed over the decades. Through a thorough examination of both the Eat Well recommendations and Livewell report, we will discover what a nutritious, sustainable diet is and how to affort it. We will be investigating ways of successfully achieving behavior change in individuals, communities and organisations and consider alternatives protein sources which can be easily incorporated into our daily diet.
We will be assisted by the Rowatt Institute for Nutrition and our 2000m2 community cook, Mona Taylor.
