Food systems can contribute greatly to climate change but can also be part of the solution to the problem. Katie Temple is working to make agriculture in NL more resilient to climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. NL’s environment might actually be the perfect place to make a difference on these issues, as it turns out.
Whether it’s buying local products or growing your own food there’s a lot that can be done. We also talk about electric bikes and green drinks; some of the dynamic actions taking place in my hometown of Corner Brook. She invites people to learn more on the Western Environment Centre’s website.
Katie’s take on what you can do: Find something you’re passionate about in terms of climate change and work on it in you community. Tell other people about what you’re doing and work together. Tell politicians to take action on these issues.
