~ food security ~

Some days these girls really blow it out of the water. To be so young and, with just some gently prompting, to be able to "get" a complex issue like food security?

Mind. Blown.

So what creates food security? According to these girls, access to employment, good soils, seeds, subsistence hunting, gardening, local farms, food banks, friends, family and school lunch programs. Sounds about right, yes? We then took this understanding and ventured out with a wider scope..attempting to apply this to other communities far away. The threads of understanding become a little taut and tenuous at this point since they have a very fuzzy idea of the infinite ways in which other communities might work yet, amazingly, they still have a good grasp on the basic premise.

Pretty profound, I think, for 9-11 year olds...
