Title: Local food makes more sense than ever
In an effort to try and think of what I can do as an individual in this crazy time, I have been considering the long term consequences of the event. I think one of the things that we need to consider, when looking at this in a systemic way, is our dependency on petroleum, globalization and our food system. Every aspect of our food system is based on petroleum, transportation, chemical applications, etc..
So, local food, again, is the core of who we are and a solution for many of the problems that we face.
Just a thought.
