A GIFT FROM THE HEART...

A Profound & Deeply Moving Epilogue to +Jane Grueber 's appearance on this week's radio show that will touch your heart to the core...

In this article, Jane talks about her personal discoveries through the process of sharing about her experiences, unveiling #sociopolitical, #sociocultural, and #intrapsychic implications surrounding beliefs about #poverty and #shame.

During the show, Jane shares about her experiences of living in Eastern Europe during difficult times, including living through the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster just a couple of months prior to defecting to Austria with her brother and mom as political refugees (dad had to stay behind), eventually settling in Canada when she was just 9 years old. While her mom was blessed to find work 2 weeks after moving to Canada, earning just $4.25 an hour was far less than could sustain her family. Even with both of the children foregoing the privileges of extra-curricular opportunities as they struggled hard to help their family keep a roof over their heads, combined with the generous donations of the community with weekly food hampers, etc., Jane's family lived for over 6 years a very food insecure existence, amidst the other challenges their impoverished life entailed.

Jane's courage to persist on her journey, later to become a Speech and Language Therapist, helping other underprivileged children for 17 years in Alberta increased her passion to help make a difference by committing herself to becoming an advocate of food security.

Jane's insights that she shared during the radio interview and in this article have far-reaching implications regarding how we think about and treat each other. #HUMANITY is on the table here, where she ends her article with:

"Why do I advocate and feel so passionate about alleviating food insecurity? Because upholding human rights and dignity of everyone on this planet through compassion, love, fairness, awareness and understanding is the only way forward."

I hope you appreciate this article from Jane's heart as much as I do.

FOOD SECURITY & FOOD SAFETY. +Jane Grueber – Urban Garden #Revolutionary

LISTEN NOW: http://stfi.re/jebokwa

Join me in welcoming return guest #UrbanGardener Jane Grueber back on the Dr. #TheresaNIcassio Show for a passionate conversation about empowering #grassroots #urbangarden initiatives.

Jane will be sharing more about where her enthusiasm for #urbangardening came from, having grown up in the Czech Republic and living through the experience of her entire community’s #foodsupply being poisoned by the #Chernobyldisaster. Appreciating the realities and privilege of clean food, Jane has embraced the vision to follow her heart to make a difference for future generations and the planet for abundant, accessible and healthy food for all, starting in her own front yard.

“Rather than fighting the world we reject, let’s use our knowledge, skills, insights, principle and techniques to create the world we do want.” ~ +Bill Mollison

Jane Grueber is an #urbangardener a mother and a speech-language pathologist who is passionate about food security and food safety. Her passion lies in advocating for #foodsecurity – That all people, at all times, have access to nutritious, safe, personally acceptable and culturally appropriate food obtained through normal food distribution channels.

Food Security is “making sure that your neighbor is fed”.

~ +Carolyn Herriott, author and #VancouverIsland farmer

Jane's life experiences have taken her down a path she never expected. As a child she experienced #foodsecurity and #foodsafety issues in Eastern Europe particularly following the #Chernobyl Nuclear accident in April 1986, as an immigrant to Canada, and later as a professional working with children in #disadvantaged Neighbourhoods in Alberta.
