I have been having a lot of conversations around the idea of creating change lately. From living rooms to conference centres, there are many discussions taking place about how to create the change that we need in our world. A lot of these conversations have focussed on food, something that is vital to us all. A lot of those conversations have also focussed around change and how do we create change.
Just a few years ago, I thought “organic” was some trend of the elite. The letters GMO meant nothing to me. I was blind. I was content to see the world through my rose-coloured glasses and indulge in my genetically modified food stuffs, blissfully ignorant to what I was doing to my body. And then I had an awakening moment, and I could no longer ignore what was happening all around me. On my own property even. Since taking off those rose-coloured glasses, I see the world in a whole new light. What mattered so much before, means little to me now.
And I am not the only one. I have met so many people on my journey who are on similar journeys. They too are seeking a simpler kind of life.
