Terry Oxford collaborates with both Terra Madre and Slow Food to educate and inform the public about the importance of seasonal, local and organic food for all creatures. She encourage the understanding that everything we plant is critically important to nature. What ever we plant, whether food for people or just for beauty must be systemic poison free. Systemic insecticides, fungicides and herbicides are the number one danger to bees, wildlife and, to humans. We must stop poisoning the planet for short term agricultural gains and to profit the chemical industry.
