Working our way backwards… Day 2

50 Reasons to Eat & Grow Local Food

Reason #2

Eating and growing local food makes us feel connected to others who are doing the same, all over the world. It’s a real revolution in thinking and acting upon what we see going on around us:

  • climate change and its effects on food,
  •  skyrocketing food costs,
  •  political turmoil,
  • peak oil,
  • other environmental disasters (oil spills, nuclear disasters),
  • unfair labour standards all over the world for agricultural workers, and
  • food shortages/famines that result from all the above.
We’re facing a lot of problems with our current system, but it’s important to note that there are many of us all over the planet, who are trying to counteract and create something new.
