Heirloom Tomatoes to the Rescue

What perfect timing- I saw this video yesterday after posting about ECHO and their mission. This video is not about the ECHO organization, but is related to the type of work they do, and illustrates the role of agriculture in health in poor rural areas:

The video is only 4:34 long- it is worth watching. 

It does make one pause and feel grateful for things we may sometimes take for granted- such as access to food. We as a society might not always make the healthiest food choices- but we have choices.
