2020 Poll

CO2e per Serving

When asked in a survey from Senator Cory Booker, “What issues are most important to you when picking a 2020 political candidate?”; I chose, “Climate Change”, and also wrote in the little box under “Other”,

“Vegan food choices, clean renewable energy (solar, wind), orchards, gardens and composting at all schools, military bases, public lands, prisons, hospitals, etc to stop climate change, feed needy, lead by example, and teach how food impacts climate footprint. Also grow hemp for oil, seeds, textiles, $. And end war.”

I replied to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s survey, “Go vegan for climate, health, economy, sustainability, hunger, peace, animals.”

Groundwork & MARC

I had fun going to Meetup events with my friend, Eddie. First we went to “Learn How To Compost” by Lee Dwyer of Groundwork Somerville at Somerville Community Growing Center where we learned about indoor & outdoor composting with about twenty other gardeners. I’ve kept an outdoor compost pile since 1991 and learned from my Dad who composted grass clippings, weeds, leaves, and fruit and vegetable scraps. Then we went to Whole Foods and bought some raw fresh figs which were very delicious! Next we went to Boston University’s Marsh Chapel for a “Vegan Standout” with MARC, the “Barnyard Trio”, and about twenty vegans. The events were posted on Boston Raw Food Meetup and Boston Vegan Meetup.
