Tuesday, October 14: “Restore the Ecosystem and Restore Health—Healing from Lyme Disease on an Organic Farm in Northern Illinois” by Tom Spaulding. The CDC acknowledges that more than 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme Disease in the U.S. each year. Tom Spaulding is one of them. After seven years of mysterious symptoms, Tom’s illness became so severe he was nearly incapacitated and unable to work. After years of misdiagnosed symptoms, an integrative medical doctor diagnosed Tom with Lyme Disease; he began a more than two-year healing journey. Tom is founding executive director of Angelic Organics Learning Center, a nonprofit dedicated to helping rural and urban people build a healthy local food system. He is inspired by farms as dynamic places of cultural, ecological, and economic revitalization.
