Today is International Day of Biological Diversity!
To celebrate International Day of Biological Diversity Slow Food International released this video about the Slow Food Ark of Taste - "an online catalogue collecting endangered food flavors, knowledge and traditions from around the world". Learn how big agriculture is changing our nation's diets and how you can help save precious varieties. I could totally picture students utilizing the online catalogue as a service learning project in several ways. Don't let the recipes and flavors of our ancestors be lost forever! Support this great effort by researching varieties important to you, visiting your local farmers market, grow and/or support local heirloom growers and by simply sharing the message.
