Nutrient-dense organs, bones, and animal fats were the foundation foods of your ancestors, not to mention every healthy traditional culture that has ever existed. Their absence from our modern diet, and the imitation foods that replaced them, is one of the leading factors in the chronic disease pandemic that is now responsible for 60% of deaths globally. At the same time our planets ecosystems we depend upon for survival are collapsing around us as a result of industrial animal and crop agriculture. We are literally eating ourselves and our planet to death. But there is a simple solution to both these problems.  Join ex vegan, regenerative farmer and Weston A. Price Foundation Edmonton Chapter Leader Takota Coen to learn how you can eat the change you want to see in the world.


As a child Takota struggled with digestive issues, allergies, dental cavities, chronic fatigue, and a weak immune system. As a young adult, when he awoke to the staggering environmental and ethical impact our eating habits were having on our planet and its creatures, he decided to go vegan. Then he had a health crisis. His journey to optimal health began when he discovered the diet and agricultural principles of traditional peoples from around the world. After using these principles to heal himself and his land he now works with urbanites, homesteaders and farmers across Canada and online around the world to help share his understanding of the ecological principles that can help us live happier, healthier and more regenerative lifestyles. He holds a Permaculture Design Certificate from PRI, a Holistic Management Certificate from HMI, Red Seal Journeyman Certificate for Carpentry, and is the Weston A. Price Foundation Edmonton Chapter Leader.
