    Johns Hopkins University’s Center for a Livable Future (CLF):


    Within CLF’s program areas — farming, eating and living for our future — we are engaged in three principle activities: research, educational outreach, and community action. All of our work is driven by the concept that diet, health, food production, the environment, population and equity are all elements of a single complex system, illustrated here in the CLF Concept Model. Change to one element invariably affects the others, sometimes in unpredictable ways.

    For programs in these 3 distinct areas, go to:

    Save the Bay, Eat Locally Grown!
    A joint project of CLF and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation


    Spurred in part by a 2005 CBF report entitled Vital Signs:Assessing the State of Chesapeake Agriculture that concluded that traditional agriculture in the Chesapeake Bay watershed was losing ground to sprawling development pressure and that certain farming practices were contributing to soil erosion and Bay pollution, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation staff decided to make the connection between food choices and the health of the Bay in their own backyard. In June 2006 they launched, in concert with the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, the “Save the Bay, Eat Locally Grown” campaign at CBF’s Philip Merrill Headquarters in Annapolis. This weekly lunch program for staff comes with more than good, healthy food. It also brings with it messages about the need to support regional and local agriculture, especially operations that use sustainable farming practices.

    Article from Earthsave’s website – EATING HEALTHY ON $3.57 A DAY: The Washington Post reported earlier this week on a few Members of Congress trying to live on a food stamp budget for a week. They weren’t successful, and also concluded that to try to eat on such a small amount forced people to eat unhealthy food and that one could not buy organic food on that budget. Not surprisingly, they were trying to eat meat.

    On May 27th the Post published a little piece by Tom Wolfe in which he reports that he has lived on such a food budget since April. He reports success living on organic whole grains, dried beans and fresh vegetables, with enough extra to provide lunch four times a week to his staff at Smile Herb Shop.
