A plate of your favorite food is served to you for dinner. The smell of the food would make anyone want a bite. After one bite you taste the texture, the ingredients merge into new flavors and making it your favorite meal. Image the ingredients used to cook that dish. Where did it come from ? What makes you want to take another bite ? Is it the freshness of the food provided by our farmers or how it was cooked by the chef? I believe it can be both of how the cycle of our food system to meet the demand for the consumer. Support my program by following my social media.

Step 1: Create Free Printable Eco-Sustainable Meal Plan packages.
Reason To Donate: Meal Planning requires research, time, and creativity to present selective meals for viewers to enjoy. For joining my free program, I will send free printable meal packages. Help me continue creating more meal packages.
The meal challenge is to select the proper ingredients to satisfy our hunger through the week. I will provide a menu plan with a grocery list selecting key ingredients using California farmers’ and farmers’ market recipes directly linked to the website with instructions. The unique opportunity is to no longer pick random ingredients from the market shelf, then improvise using leftovers. Follow my guide can reduce unused ingredients leading to spoiled food left in the fridge for long periods. The experience is to cook-at-home with seasonal ingredients supporting our economy, try flavors famously served in different regions and increase traffic to check our local business websites.
Its an opportunity to create a variety of meal for anyone to enjoy every day, save money, reduce carbon footprint, and encourages starting a healthy balanced diet.
Step 2: Create an interactive food map of California counties.
Reason To Donate: ESRI Software can be a priceless tool to create accurate information for viewers to visualize professional maps. It allows my efforts to analyze large sums of data within a short amount of time, which overcomes Google Maps by a mile.
An advertisement map for viewers (customers, restaurants, professional meal preppers, and more) to visit my website using USDA data and communicate with farmers. The software will be used in ArcGIS Online for users to click a county knowing where to buy local produce at our certified farmers’ markets through California. Every region shares a different schedule for fruits and vegetables to ripen:
- The map will navigate recommended products in each county by finding our organic products provided by available public information.
- To educate customers about ordering commercial products to visualize how far selected food brands are delivered.
- Educate gardeners to follow local farmers to be as successful in seeding and growing their produce.
Step 3: Rank Farming Methods In California
Reason To Donate:
Increase residents to grow their crops at home by introducing local farming methods for anyone to try, especially in urban communities with limited space. This alternative is to gain the support of local farmers to share their practices for residents to follow at home and statistically present new findings. For example, the USDA developed the Hardiness Plant Zone Map to locate suitable areas to grow crops based on the users’ environmental climate.
Question: Will collecting data from farmers create an accurate map supporting the USDA Hardiness Plant Zone Map to plant seasonal and possibly grow out of season produce in California?
Fresh produce can be grown successfully at home in multiple ways either in a controlled and uncontrolled environment. The challenge is selecting crops to meets their nutritional requirements, over come drought and other environmental issues. The research material will sponsor USDA data, and farmers seasonal calendars that could map suitable locations in the state of California to value different ecosystems.
