Scrumptious Food

Question: "With food costs skyrocketing, what will you do to help small-scale farmers support their local communities? With food costs skyrocketing, what will do you to encourage communities to choose local food?

Local organic farming and farmer’s markets are the answer.  We can encourage and develop these channels of distribution, and by doing so, the costs will go down.  It will simply be less expensive when everybody collaborates.  So the real solution comes back to education, and sharing movements like the “100-mile diet.”

Most people will choose wisely when they are aware of their choices.  Most people are unaware simply because you and I haven’t taken the initiative to inform them of what they are consuming and what alternative options are.  So tell your friends about genetically modified organisms.  Tell your family about the harms of fluoride in the water.  Talk to your neighbors about MSG, BPA, and aspartame.

And it’s working.  Organic food used to be laughed at, and now it is a permanent section of most mainstream grocers.

What’s most important is for the government not to get in the way or block people from growing their own food.  Legislation that prevents people from self-sustainment makes people dependent on a government that will ultimately enslave them.  And we don’t want that.

The Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada (OACC) conducts organic farming research and provides knowledge transfer and extension services for organic farmers.

Work with organizations like Seed Your City and grow local, organic food in urban agricultures. There's a great talk from an eleven-year-old about what's wrong with our food system.
