The theme of this issue of the Alternative Voice is “Food for Ascension,” a concept coined by Gabriel of Urantia, co-founder of Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage. Food for Ascension is about ethical, moral, and sustainable growing, producing, processing, distributing, and preparing food—literally addressing food issues from farm to fork. It is first a philosophy that is based on divine administration principles and is very much a part of the Slow Food Movement but goes beyond that movement in applying spiritual principles also. All articles in this issue reflect some aspect of Food for Ascension, and, with the exception of Lee Allen, all authors live in the community of Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage. Feast at the table of their experiences, knowledge, and wisdom.
