Please respond to One of the Activities.
Have you ever engaged in a food-getting practice with an immediate return, such as hunting, fishing, or gathering? How was this experience different than purchasing the same type of food at the grocery store? Have you ever engage in a food-getting practice with a delayed return? Please discuss and describe your responses.
Mono-cropping is a feature of industrial food production and has the benefit of producing staple foods like wheat and corn in vast quantities, but mono-cropping makes our diet less diverse. Are the effects of agricultural mono-cropping reflected in your own everyday diet? How many different plant foods do you eat on a regular basis? How difficult would it be for you to obtain a more diverse diet by shopping in the same places you shop now?
