We live in the SF Bay Area, a  NIRVANA for food-lovers! There are classes, professional leadership seminars, food hackathons, tours, gourmet field to table extravaganzas, and also this wonderful opportunity made available by Alice Waters and Will Rosenzweig, leaders in thoughtful eating, great food, and sustainability.

  • CLASS: Edible Education 101
  • DATE: Begins Wednesday 1/17
  • Details below:

It is my privilege to join Alice Waters to co-host Edible Education 101 again this semester.  This uniquely UC Berkeley course, now in its seventh year, is available to undergraduates, graduate students and the local community and is live-streamed and archived online. EE 101 meets Wednesday evenings (6:15 to 8pm Pacific Time) beginning January 17, 2018. We’d encourage you to share this invitation with friends who are passionate about shaping a healthy and regenerative food system.

Once again we are honored to hear from the thoughtful, informed and provocative voices shaping and leading the food movement. The course explores current food issues against a backdrop of systems thinking, ethical action, creativity and innovation. This semester we will also showcase the work of inspiring, emerging leaders who are making a difference in diverse disciplines. Our intent is to help our community of learners develop “food systems intelligence” — a way of seeing and acting in our local and global food ecologies with clear intent and an understanding of our personal and collective impacts. We also hope to build a bridge for students to envision how they can apply themselves personally and professionally in the world of food. Here is the schedule of guest lecturers and topics (with special surprises in the works). All classes are on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 pm PST.        Our teaching team will be creating a weekly newsletter with a link to the class readings and video archive. Each edition will preview the coming class content and will provide a recap of the prior week’s highlights. We will also post weekly invitations (space permitting) to obtain a ticket to attend the class in person, on campus. If you received this email from a friend or colleague and would like to join the class and get weekly updates, click here. If you do not wish to receive weekly course updates or invites, you can opt-out by clicking on the link at the bottom of this email.  We look forward to seeing you in class! With all good thoughts, Will Rosenzweig Social Impact Fellow Special thanks to Berkeley Haas Center for Responsible Business, The Edible Schoolyard Project, Food Venture Lab, and Steve Silberstein for the generous support and collaboration that makes this course possible and broadly available.

NEW! Organic Life magazine

RODALE INC. UNVEILS PREMIER ISSUE OF RODALE’S ORGANIC LIFE MAGAZINE

Learn more about Rodale here …. This company has led the organic movement with quality info, mags and more… for a very long time!  Thanks Rodale!  —  the editor

NEW YORK, NY and EMMAUS, PA – April 13, 2015 –Rodale Inc., the world’s leading healthy lifestyle media company, today announced the launch of Rodale’s Organic Life, a stylish guide for living naturally in the modern world. The May/June 2015 issue, on newsstands now, is a relaunch of the company’s flagship brand, Organic Gardening, and will offer a fresh spin on food, garden, home, and wellbeing.

“The organic movement has come a long way since 1942 when my grandfather, J.I. Rodale, first recognized the connection between healthy soil, healthy food and healthy people,” explains Rodale Inc. Chairman and CEO, Maria Rodale, who will pen a regular column in the bimonthly publication. “Organic has become a lifestyle and a set of values, not just a way to grow food, and I am so excited for readers to be able to experience that on every page of this new magazine.”

Rodale’s Organic Life will continue to feature gardening content, but will also expand to new content areas including food, home and wellbeing.

“What you’ll find is a beautiful, fun, and empowering brand for people who strive to live well, consume responsibly, and embrace everyday life with mindfulness and gusto,” says Editor-in-Chief, James Oseland. “We’re not preaching a hard-and-fast set of rules of what is or isn’t ‘organic;’ we are celebrating the shared belief of a wide and fast-growing audience that we are put on earth to constantly strive to be better—spiritually, physically, intellectually and emotionally.”

Highlights from the premier issue include…

…Flower Power: An in-depth look at the sustainable flower movement with beautiful spring bouquets raised in ways that support a healthy ecosystem.

…Walkabout: An expansive feature that explores the art, history, and science of walking, including a list of 10 of the world’s greatest walks, a smart walker’s gear guide, and a diagram to help you find the best shoe for your walk.

…Salmon Bay: A first-person account of the yearly journey to catch wild sockeye salmon in Bristol Bay, Alaska, also featuring a buyer’s guide to sustainable salmon; inspiring, delicious salmon recipes for Spring; and six easy sauces perfect for salmon.

…Let There Be Light: A visual collection of dwelling places around the world, showing readers how to bring more natural light into their living space.

…Mixed Greens: A comprehensive guide to the today’s best homegrown lettuces, with accompanying photographs, strategies for planting and growing, and recipe recommendations.

Each issue will also feature columns from Carla Hall, Margaret Roach, and Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, as well as Almanac, a special section printed on newsprint and featuring how-tos, tips, and discoveries related to the issue’s stories.

Among a distinguished group of experts who will work closely with the editorial staff and contribute to the magazine are Mario Batali, Clodagh, Tom Colicchio, Dennis Kucinich, Deborah Madison, Frances Mayes, Bill McKibben, Marion Nestle, Eric Schlosser, and Alice Waters.

“Rodale has been helping people understand the benefits of healthy living for more than 70 years,” said Scott Schulman, President of the family-owned company. “With this launch, we are able to further that mission and serve consumers and advertisers in one of the most important and fastest growing market segments.”
