Ocean Warming by Matt Brown
Static Preview

Matt decided to get a Geoscience single-subject teaching credential at UC Irvine, and after several years of teaching Marine Science (chemistry, biology, ecology, and other related topic concerning the world’s oceans) and ROP Environmental Horticulture (career technical education in using plants for beauty, shelter, and food) at Northwood High School (Irvine, CA), he became extremely interested in the connection between the food we eat and the negative impacts of modern agriculture on the health of the oceans (acidification, ocean warming, dead zones, etc.), so he telephoned his old Peace Corps friend Nathan.

In 1999, Matt and Bobbie Brown met Nathan McFall in a small village, Kuma-Dunyo, in Togo, West Africa. They worked with farmers, non- government organizations, and students introducing and implementing environmental awareness and education programs, soil conservation techniques, and animal husbandry.

 

In the summer of 2010, the Brown family decided to move to Oregon! They settled in Milwaukie (SE Portland, Oregon) and soon thereafter, with Nathan,  started the non-profit, Food|Waves.

Matt was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, July 23, 2011 in Portland, Oregon.
