Episode Description:

“If the World Were a Village”. In this I read and show illustrations by author David J. Smith and illustrator Shelagh Armstrong. It is based on the premise that there are only 100 people on the earth. One hundred is a very easy number for people to understand. It paints a picture of how the village would be made up, economically, by education, availability of food and what kind, according to religion, nationality, electricity and more. Aimed at children, there is much to be learned here for adults.
In August I attended a Bread Fair in Skowhegan, Maine. It was part on an International Bread Conference. At the fair folks, mostly from Maine, offered their artisan breads, home-grown vegetables, meats and cheeses. These were mostly organically or at least GMO-free products. The point was to show the economic and nutritional value of locally grown and produced food. It is followed by a short piece about a local grower, who’s family has been growing and distributing local vegetables continuously for over a hundred years.
