    Forest and Farms: Stories of Sourcing and Food Security

    Forest and Farms: Stories of Sourcing and Food Security

    In this episode, we take a closer look at how food brings people together. Apart from the cultural sacredness of sharing meals and gathering around the table with people we love, food connects us to others in unexpected ways. This is where the Good Food Community comes in, bringing us closer to the source of our food and to the farmers through community-shared agriculture. We interview Mabi David, a plant-based, vegan wiz in the kitchen who is also a trailblazing advocate for sustainable agriculture.

Episodes 2,3,4,5 & 6

After listening to five episodes, I’m certain this host deserves a 5-star rating. I’m not into conversations, but Onggie and Bryan combine eloquence and “funny”, and their speakers have such refreshing, novel, almost philosophical insights. They speak sometimes passionately, sometimes candidly but either way, their minds amaze me.
