    I enjoyed this challenge! It motivated me to cook more at home, and to try more meatless meals. I liked having all these resources, learning about all kinds of organizations, and learning new things about food sovereignty. It was encouraging to see so many people working towards the same goal of overall sustainability. I wish I could've...

    This challenge gave me optimism. Knowing caring people are out there in the thousands was a powerful boost to my own personal efforts. And I learned so much from the folks that read, researched, and reflected during these few weeks. Onward!

    I found a car mechanic shop that accepts used cooking oil.  They centrifuge it and use it to heat the building in the winter.  I wish more places would find resourceful ways to recycle.  It can be a big benefit, not just an obligation.

I also enjoy learning about native species and what adaptations they have to give them an edge in their environment.  Finding something I can eat is fun!  I hope to pass this knowledge on to my children.
