“We are sitting on the graveyard of vast, advanced, sophisticated, beautiful civilisations who we owe our very existence to oftentimes. Indigenous food scientists from thousands of years ago are what’s feeding the world today. We brought the world potatoes. We brought the world tomatoes. We brought the corn. We brought the world cacao. We brought the world vanilla, you know, all these things. We had diverse systems. We understood that diversity was the cornerstone of health, and, I guess prosperity.” Lyla June
