Compost: An Everlasting Meal

by Andrea Gentl, Photographer
“I was inspired by Tamar Adler’s book, An Everlasting Meal. In the next half century we, as the collective human population, will move away from the idea of food as an endless resource to understanding the powerful value in every last scrap and morsel. We will be forced to examine our hideous wasteful habits. We, as a culture, waste enormous amounts of food daily. In the future the idea of the ‘whole animal’ will trickle down to every beet root and onion skin. We will literally be eating our compost.”
