To network with professionals and educators throughout the world who have a passion for education, understand Ecopreneurship, practice locavorism and are interested in the ecology of food.
As educator, I work on the development and improvement of course articulation agreements and curricular modifications to better facilitate the transfer of students from central valley community or junior colleges to a campus in the system of California State University or University of California.
As chef, I cook with fresh, organic sustainable ingredients that are in season and native to the region I happen to be cooking in. I look at the food miles and the carbon food prints of these foods to ensure the lowest environmental impact from field to fork.
An Ecoprenuer® is an entrepreneur who is focused on ecologically-friendly issues and causes, attempting to do business in a way which benefits the environment.
A locavore is someone who eats food grown or produced locally or within a certain radius such as 50, 100, or 150 miles. The locavore movement encourages consumers to buy from farmers' markets or even to produce their own food, with the argument that fresh, local products are more nutritious and taste better. Locally grown food is an environmentally friendly means of obtaining food, since supermarkets that import their food use more fossil fuels and non-renewable resources.
Ecology is the multidisciplinary scientific study of the distribution and abundance of life and the interactions between organisms and their natural environment.
