It has been a hell of a week! Unless you’ve understandably decided to go right ahead and hide under a rock, you are most likely a bit more stressed than usual. It’s not often we run into the threat of nuclear war and race war in the span of ten days. Whew, once you catch your breath if you’re like us you’ll probably want to do something to make the world better or at the very least make yourself feel better, and you can do both at the same time. We’re talking about the simplest and most direct coping mechanism, eating, more specifically; food security.
It’s not really the political threat that’ll get you, it’s the fallout from reckless decisions and behavior at the top that, when combined with Global Climate Change will lead to you not being able to access affordable, healthy food. That my friend is food insecurity. Now is the time to ensure food security for you, your family and your community. While not everyone is green thumbed one change you can make is to get to know some farmers. We are a decent bunch.
Organic cultivators come in many shapes and sizes, modern social media makes them easy to find. Do some googling and you’ll soon see your local producers. Many communities have food share programs that you can join up with.
If you are the gardening sort you’ll know the most important factor in any plant growth is the soil. If you’re reading this post you’ll know exactly how to get your hands on that, wink, wink.
