ENVISION THIS...Basing your life, your work, your health, and your diet on the food wisdom of our ancestors
Our guest, Elli Sparks, embodies this vision Her biodynamic permaculture farm, where she has been increasing the carbon sucking capacity of her pastures with mob grazing, is called Sacred Foods Farm.The name comes from the research done by Dr. Weston A. Price and the book he wrote that collected together in one place the food wisdom of our ancestors.It is this wisdom that has helped Elli heal from rheumatoid arthritis and depression.
She was the co-founding member of the Richmond Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby. She is building relationships with members of Congress, their aides, and the local newspaper's editorial board for the purpose of ensuring her own children's health, security, and wellbeing.
Her children's stories, available from her in manuscript form, are "Papa, Tell Me a Story" about the time Earth very nearly lost her people and "If You Ask Your Congressman to Be a Climate Hero."
In an article for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Sparks writes:
"Perhaps more than most issues, climate change is a spiritual challenge with a political solution that industry must implement. We will need elected leaders and captains of industry to ground themselves spiritually. They will need to act from a place of love, not fear. Free will, I believe, only works when it comes from a place of love. I'm guessing God would say that, too.
