Food and Farm Discussion Lab

Rules and Guidelines

Food and Farm Discussion Group is dedicated to create a space of civil, skeptical exploration of the unresolved and contentious issues relating to agriculture, nutrition, and food systems.

The emphasis is on an evidence based approach to these questions and sharing high quality sources and resources.

Because these issues are often polarizing, moderation will be focused on avoiding the personal and focusing on the topic under discussion.

Please read the rules before jumping in with both feet.

But the basics are:
+Be awesome to each other. Use the Principle of Charity

+No name calling. (calling someone any version of shill or a kook will get you bounced without warning.)

+Don't get personal, stick to the issues and the evidence.

+Be prepared to back up your claims. Expect to get fact checked.
