Food is an integral part of community: what we eat, how we grow it, and who we share it with. And an ecovillage’s approach to food can tell us a lot about its philosophy, too. Today on Community we visit one of Europe’s oldest and largest ecovillages, Findhorn in Scotland, to talk to food growers, cooks and volunteers to understand the community through its approach to growing, cooking and eating. We’ll hear about ‘growing people’, giant cabbages, and what food service can teach us about the Findhorn philosophy of love in action.
Findhorn recently suffered a devastating fire and is in the process of rebuilding: if you would like to support the community, please visit findhorn.org/donate.
Thanks to our guests Evert Vanthoor, André Patrão and Cintia de Godoy. Cintia recently published a book, Ecofeminismo Crítico: Justicia y Ética Interespecies, which will be available soon.
