‘Food-Newfoundland’ is the first in my series of projects that examines Abraham Maslow’s theory of Hierarchy of Need.

Your books … I read the Refugee one, ‘This I can Carry’, first…probably because I am passionate about people and especially people needing support. I loved it – I loved the pictures, I loved the story, I found myself understanding the plight of refugees on a much deeper level and it will stay with me forever. Thank you!
The second read ‘Food – Newfoundland’, I enjoyed but it didn’t resonate on a deep level with me. This is probably because I am lazy about food and packaging and even though I am constantly reminded about soil, sustainability, our destruction of the planet, food miles etc I have for some reason pushed it out there. I am thinking this morning about why I do this – I certainly think I understand the problem but this knowledge hasn’t changed my behaviour. Why not? I don’t really know .. is it laziness, is it because I think that “someone” will sort out the problem as they surely can’t let it continue, do I not have sufficient information … I don’t know. What your book did do for me was make me determined to start a compost box!
