What are we eating?

i Feb 25th No Comments by

The conversation is growing around our food and how it affects our health. There are many anecdotal accounts of food as medicine. In a recent Tedx talk Dr. Katherine Reid discusses her experience and journey in looking at the direct link between food and autism.

Dr. Reid takes us on an intriguing journey of diet changes that diminished her daughter’s autistic behaviors. She reveals an association between a common ingredient in the Western diet and many chronic illnesses that plague a number of countries. Dr. Reid tells the story that lead to her founding Unblind My Mind.

By participating and investing in Grass Roots Up Cooperative, you can be a part of ensuring, sustainable, local food, grown from the natural bounty and grass advantage remains part of the food system in Nova Scotia. You can be part of positive and lasting food security for all.

Investments made prior to the end of Feb may qualify for Equity Tax Credit, so if you were already thinking about joining us and  investing, now is a great time!
