Regenerative Chef Loghan Call is focused on creating awareness around the power of food and its ability to heal not only ourselves but our communities and environment. Food is the conveyor of a larger, broader, societal message of connection to nature and understanding how to find balance between the modern world and the sage wisdom of natural systems. There is nothing we interact with more frequently, nor has a bigger impact on our personal health than food; and yet, it continues to be the area where many attempt to spend as little time and money on as possible.
