  • Reflection Question
    Food Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    I'm most motivated to change my behavior because I can appreciate the hard work that goes into cultivating foods. I also understand that I need to be appreciative of what resources I have and not de-value them by wasting things I know others would not be able to afford to waste. I like to compost because I bring the paper bag to my universities micro-farm and I know the farmers really appreciate that!
