Sustainability is a word we often hear thrown around in conversation, but what does it really mean in the context of how we, as individual people, can better coexist with our natural surroundings in ways that help move our world toward a better environmental future?

The session will be led by Jason DeSalvo a serial entrepreneur turned local, organic, regenerative farmer who, along with his wife, built and lives on a Sustainable Homestead in Tewksbury, New Jersey where they grow heirloom grains, fruits, berries, nuts, vegetables and produce more electricity than they use (including for their electric cars). Just five short years ago they were living a fairly typical suburban life in Montclair, NJ when they decided that they wanted to be part of the solution to the world’s growing list of environmental crises rather than part of the problem. What they have learned along the way will provide invaluable insights into simple, meaningful steps that each of us can take everyday to collectively make a very large and very positive impact on our personal health, the health of our communities and the health of our planet.
