    I made a seaweed sandwich. I definitely will because I have a lot left. It turned out great and I have made it before.

    I think while learning about aquaculture, it was interesting to learn what it even was. I had no idea what aquaculture was until I started this eco challenge. It was interesting to learn about how much goes into this and how normal aquaculture can have a negative effect on the environment because it is pretty much the ocean equivalent to livestock farms, but if it is done differently, can have some really good effects for the environment.

    As I learn more about the seriousness of the environmental challenges we face, I think more and more that the actions that we make, really have an impact, and we need to make sure that we are making good impacts. The statistics show that we are really not doing well, and that there is SO MUCH that we need to do to save our planet, which is very overwhelming. But there are still a lot of people that are really trying to make an impact, and although it is slow, it gives me some hope.

    It has an impact on me being able to be more informed on what I know is going to be more helpful to the environment when I make decisions
    ?: What are the parts that feel overwhelming?
    It feels overwhelming that when people write articles like this it obviously shows that there is a problem but they put it mainly in the hands of the reader. It's hard to even think that making changes yourself will help at all.
    ?: What parts help you feel hopeful?
    I feel hopeful about the parts that show how we have come up with many different solutions so once we input them more hopefully things will start to improve a lot.

    Land Sinks Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    I have never heard of this term before (silverpasture). After learning more about it I think the biggest advantage is that the cows would be healthier if you had a silver pasture.
