"I avoid grandiose plans. I start with a small piece that I can do. I go to the root of the problem and then work around it. It's building brick by brick."
Foods we eat have hidden environmental costs. Modern mechanized farming has resulted in pollution of air and water, and degradation of soil. As the world population continues to grow, food shortages push up prices around the world and contribute to political instability of many nations as people face hunger and chronic disease. UHD students explored this issue through their research projects and volunteer activities with local farmers’ markets, a medical mission trip, and Earth Day Houston 2009.
