“This is really where the talk gets thrown out the window, and it’s really all about action. We’re seeing the effects of climate change, so now it’s really the time for us to put it into action. Perfect timing for us to be there and involved, and show people what Farm From a Box can do.“

Hi, Brandi. Welcome.
Brandi DeCarli 0:33
Hi, Vicki, how are you doing?
Vicki Saunders 0:35
I’m good. I hear you have some exciting news. Where are you going?
Brandi DeCarli 0:39
Yes, I’m going to COP26, in Glasgow, with the New York Times.
Vicki Saunders 0:45
Oh, my God, tell me more.
Brandi DeCarli 0:49
So the New York Times, is basically a content partner of COP26. And for COP26. For those that don’t necessarily know what that is, it’s basically the climate change gathering globally, that’s happening. And this one’s particularly important because countries have fallen short with the Paris Agreement. So we really need to dive into action with this. So the New York Times has a Climate Hub, and through that they have a Climate Innovators Initiative, where they brought together vetted climate innovations, like Farm From a Box to really talk about what their solutions are, and the impacts that it can make in terms of really addressing climate change and helping communities do better and be better.
Vicki Saunders 1:33
This is huge. Well, congratulations, first of all, enormous.
Brandi DeCarli 1:37

This is a very important meeting. So tell us, like quick update what’s going on with Farm From a Box? And then we’re going to talk to you when you’re there in Glasgow?
Brandi DeCarli 1:47
Yes, yes, yes. I mean, quite literally, this is the World’s To-Do List, but in a global conference, so I’m gonna have a lot to share. So very proud about that. And in our talk, I’m going to be in an editorial session talking about Moonshot Inventions for climate change, which, quite frankly, is what SheEO is all about with Ventures anyway. So we’ll be excited to be able to discuss that. Updates on our end, it’s interesting for us to attend a global United Nations Conference, because we’re a vendor of United Nations. And with that, we’re about to start doing our first volume order with the United Nations for Liberia, it’s been a learning process, figuring out how to jump through the different hoops and what was required to be able to really advance that, but we’re there. So that one is huge for us. And we continue to sort of press down on what Farm From a Box can do when we apply it as a supply chain solutions that we can really multiply what our impact is. So we’re continuing to work in the US and overseas. The most important thing is that this is really where the talk, talk, talk, talk, gets sort of thrown out the window. And it’s really all about action. Because we’re seeing the effects already of climate change between rampant wildfires, and floods, and crops being devastated. So now it’s really the time for us to put it into action. So perfect timing for us to be there and involved and, and show people what Farm From a Box can do.
