Lebensreform
Germany, And Other Central European Countries
German Lebensreform (life reform) around 1890 till ? 1925 in Germany and Switzerland (even Belgium i just learned) a multitude moovement there was a lot of emphasis on the body, nakedness in the woods, small artists communities in the mountains, but also things which influenced the nazi moovement on hygeene and the culture of the body. But in genertal very alternative and experimental. Not so much have been written about it outside Germany
Earth reform, sexual, social and educational issues were also a part, as well as a new spirituality, and new ways of living.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
