Recently, I attended a panel discussion at the Natural History Museum between Marcus, Dr. Molly Jahn of the University of Madison, and activist and author Dr. Raj Patel on the topic of how climate, politics, and economics effect our food systems, and how we will feed the people on this planet in the future.

You can explore what a typical dinner Livia Drusilla, wife of Emperor Augustus in ancient Rome, would have eaten, or visualize the future of urban farming which exists in a cylinder building with inclinations full of different crops. The showcase of cultural fares and food systems is too diverse to portray a particular message, but the educational experience about an event we partake in daily resonates deep.
