Bridging the gap between communities. Melissa makes a great point in Episode #3, where we explore the importance of her visit to my farm. Somehow by encouraging more professionals in the area of nutrition to visit with farmers and visa versa we can help communications and build a greater understanding of the story behind our food. After all, we are all in the same business just at opposite ends of the spectrum. We must encourage our counterparts to get to know each other and learn from each other. We had the best day, learning, laughing and best of all surrounded by nature and animals.
Continuous learning is an important avenue to growing our minds. I challenge my friends in the Food business to get to know other professionals involved in food. Together we can build stronger communities and long lasting friendships. #Foodcareers
