Through Food + Farms + Democracy I hope to support and interact with other U.S. adults who also want to claim their adult effectiveness as caretakers and providers and who want to be stand-up members of their community.

By “getting specific about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” and making group decisions around Food + Farms + Democracy, I think we will address the major sources of our inequalities and our unhappiness.  In the 21st century, food system work is a high leverage arena for addressing multiple social issues.  For that matter, so is real democracy, since no U.S. citizen or resident has ever lived in one.

Getting specific about “life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness”  


Do I have access to food, water, and air — the basic survival requirements for life on earth?

Do I have access to place — house, land, community, office, workshop — the physical space that is my habitat?

Do I have a seat at every decision-making table that affects my ability to have access to Food and Farms?
If not, do I have the authority to create a decision-making table that includes me?
