We need more super gardens and less supermarkets. I want my food to come from my yard, not 10,000 kilometres away. I want food in local fields, forests and yards.
Let's barter my potatoes, squash, kale, garlic and grains for your apples, corn, beans and tomatoes.
I can't think of anything more "productive" than nature and growing your own food.
Happiness is a full root cellar and pantry. Security is a group of neighbours helping each other out and enjoying the local bounty of nature together.
What if the supermarket threw a big sale event and no one came?
“Food security is not in the supermarket.”
“How many of us lobby for green energy or protected lands, but don't engage with the local bounty to lay by for tomorrow's unseasonal reality? That we tend to not even think about this as a foundation for solutions in our food systems shows how quickly we want other people to solve these issues.”
