10 Principles of a Regenerative Food System

By living and eating in accordance to these principles, each one of us contributes to a more abundant future.

The Community Table Accord is a platform to promote sustainability throughout all aspects of sourcing, preparing, and eating food.

At The Ecology Center, we believe that everyday, simple solutions create big change in our communities. Together, we are building a healthy, vibrant future designed around the understanding that we are a part of nature.

The Community Table Accord is an effort to mainstream sustainability in the global farm-to-table community. Shaped, practiced, and shared by our founding chefs, the Community Table Accord advances the conversation at the dinner table. By living and eating in accordance to these principles, each one of us contributes to a more abundant future.
