My name is Max Smith, and I’m a student at Montana State University studying the mighty food system we’ve inherited in a degree program called Sustainable Foods and Bioenergy Systems. Take a look!
I intend to make myself useful to both land and people through a career propagating many organic vegetables and grains, and distributing them to people I can form relationships with. This is important to me, because I see food as the ULTIMATE organizing tool for social and environmental change. Think about it: how many transformational thoughts have you shared over meals with good friends (or even new friends)? How many have catalyzed citizen projects that have paved a new existence for yourself or other people in the community you live in? I can think of a few that I’ve participated in . . . (Purple Frog Gardens ASB, 1000 New Gardens Montana, Coffee2Compost, Neighborhood Fruit Foraging)
The purpose of this blog is to share thoughts that I have about the many interactions of food access, nutrition, and communities. I hope you dig it!
