A TRUE ADVOCATE for people into having the right to participate in the decision-making process in our food and agricultural systems. The more we participate the more we simply ensure that our food is nutritious, culturally appropriate, ethical, and ecologically sound. Moreover, the drive for quality and standards go up.
Her history in urban farming had a great impact on her, so she takes it seriously on how important it is for people to get their hands dirty to create positive actions that can decrease the rates of mental health issues in a fast-paced society, even with all these lockdowns. She believes that you can have all the opportunities to have put your hands in soil grounding ourselves and be one with nature.
She always believes on how and by whom the food is produced which determines the health of our entire planet, let alone ourselves.
Tammi then added considering that when we think about the ground it’s not just the surface of the ground up. You must relate to what’s underneath in many ways that can be quite hard until you’re living a very grounded life. Getting to know what’s underneath the surface of the ground is just as important as what’s above it.
For Her, the idea of regenerating something means to bring life back into it. Regenerating soil, according to her, means bringing back as much of its life and of its diversity as you possibly can that it wants to express. In return, it will repay us with an abundance of healthy life on earth.
So, the next time you eat, remember what Tammi has to say ‘’when you eat you are relating to many things that land is the law and it tells us everything, and what we relate to comes from that relationship with soil. We really need to value what’s underneath that soil and how important it is for us to nurture it instead of destroying it”.
This brings about a great sense of responsibility and dedication in us, For If We Learn to Value and Understand How All of Us Are Connected, then We Can Have a Vision of a Better Healthy Life ahead of Us.
Let’s not forget, WE ARE WHAT WE EAT!
