“What We Like To Learn From the Trees” is a vision for humanity to have an interconnected food web economy that relies on, instead of scarcity, the nourishment of the community to help grow the weakest parts of it. Our current model of consumption has set the planet on a trajectory towards destruction. Deforestation for farmland to feed humanity is a metaphor for gentrification in urban cities that instead of building up poorer communities, we destroy them to make room for other richer communities. To work towards an interconnected food web economy, we must protect every part of our community to ensure the growth of the community as a whole.
