I’ve had a rising number of enquiries from educators about the consumption of eggs laid in centres.
Has your local council issued information preventing you from consuming centre laid eggs? Do you object to this and want to find out how to change this in your centre and local council area? Consider these potential actions, because Action Matters.
A conscientious objective and a ministerial letter to your local representative will hold the city council to account for their position on consuming centre laid eggs and their resultant publications.
The most important consideration is to have a management plan for the care of the chickens, egg production, egg collection, egg cleaning, storing and preparation. Consider adopting a model used by organic egg farmers currently stocking grocery stores today.
Do you remember a time in history when the official line from the Department of Health, AMA, what have you was to eat low fat diets? That fat was public enemy number one to human health? Did you know that 80% of the human brain is made up of fat? The government and its 70 year long campaign against fat (as distinct from healthy fats) and our unwavering faith in its official line meant we didn’t question the motive, ethics and vested interests of those behind the research and campaigns. Now have an epidemic of people with degenerative brain diseases such as alzheimer’s.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, sugar has been used to fill almost every processed food item in our grocery aisle. And we’re addicted and we’ve raised 2 and 3 generations who are also addicted and not just physiologically. Our habits, our buying patterns, our eating habits our social patterns. And we spend lots of money on these food-like substances that make us all very unwell.
Then, we trot off to the doctors and pay for that too. Then we feel guilty because something innate within us knows and feels something is not right. But we doubt our intuition, what our body is telling us because the research says one thing or another. But who is funding the research? What’s the motive? And our hyper exposure to marketing images make us question our self image, ourself worth (which is almost entirely based upon our physical appearance) mean we do something else. Something we’ve been patterned to do. And do you know what that is? We buy into one of the largest growing industries in this country. We join a gym, and we pay for that too! There is growing awareness about how we are being guided down certain behaviour pathways everyday, like labs rats in a controlled experiment. And people are becoming less tolerant of being treated like lab rats. So the issue then becomes, where to begin to change it?
Well its right here right now. With eggs in centres. Turning off the morning breakfast TV ‘news’ shows. Main stream media is the biggest disease in this country. It establishes norms, it deems what is socially and morally acceptable. Can you believe that this is the power we have given over to the media? And the media outlets abuse this power horribly. We allow ourselves to be guided by an industry we know to be without moral foundation. Luckily, it’s not too late to change things. We must pick our battles and choose those areas that are most important to us.
This is why sustainability is so important. It’s the single most important introduction into the education sector in the last 100 years. Why? Because its given us a legitimised way to access real education. Take for example Resource Recycling (Backyard in a Box Program) its not about recycling. Its about conscious consumption. What are you buying and why? Do you really need to buy it? Can you buy from a more ethical source? What are the working conditions of the people manufacturing that product. Do you even care? Should you care?
Education for sustainability as distinct from sustainability education is a transformative process where people engage in life long learning, just as indigenous cultures have for thousands of years. Sustainability in EEC enables us to investigate whats really going on around us for ourselves by ourselves without being hand feed lines from established history books written by people with lots of agendas riddled with self interest.
The world is indeed our oyster. It will produce a pearl only when a tiny grain of sand gets it. Its the glitch, the anomaly that grows into something more beautiful and precious that we can barely imagine it until we witness and experience it firsthand. Only then do we marvel at it’s beauty and its hard earned passage to materialisation, or BEING.
I’m a tiny grain of sand. There’s lots of us around. You can be a tiny grain of sand too! Get your families on board. You and the other centres in your region CAN make a difference. You can temper these sweeping agendas and laws if you really want to.
