Geography 335: Sustainable Food Course
Instructor: Imelda K. Moise, Ph.D., MPH, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida
Reading and presenting this text was very interesting. I found the near existential quality of man’s relationship to food most interesting. I believe the neurosis that surrounds the ability to choose what we have to eat is and overall echo of the human condition. Anguish and anxiety comes from the ability to think and choose. Free will is a blessing and an overwhelming burden. We are faced with endless possibilities and an ever growing population to feed as we stray further and further from the source. However, this very source of anxiety can be our savior and the very thing to pull us from our predicament. We must use our ever so powerful minds and collect our efforts to return the food back to its source and reconcile the disconnect from nature. This is something I believe we are not only capable of, but also worthy of. We owe it ourselves and to our home to do full circle and come back to our roots with practices of local, sustainable agriculture.
