    Nature gives us what we need...we in turn need to take care of our Earth!   I love and appreciate the incredible value of nature, especially trees and their benefits:  reducing heat island effect, filtering our air, providing habitat, reducing stormwater runoff, and their sheer beauty. The most interesting fact I learned is the effectiveness of  trees in the food chain, integrating trees in pastures (silvopasture) and  crops (tree intercropping).  (Photo:  Me, enjoying nature through the artwork of Philip Haas' 'Spring' at  Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art..I highly recommend visiting!

    Mary, For some reason couldn't respond to your post directly so will say here: try fresh garden tomatoes. World of difference in my opinion. But yes, we all have that least liked veggie. Artichoke would be mine.

    What have I learned? Yes, this game is a good engagement tool. Fun to see what other teams in other places are doing. Excellent idea to have learning opportunities baked into the site. And...Every action counts!

    90% of our meetings are phone calls or conference calls.  Rarely to we require travel.  On any given project, we may have 10% of our meetings in person.

    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than other countries, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    I have a meatless house.  Still trying to give up meat when I am out.  Sometimes it's just easier to order what sounds good, but, I do try to stay conscious.  I don't eat out all that much these days.
