Re: “Wasting away

Excellent article. Think about the front end costs of the fuel, fertilizer, labour, water and seeds used to grow that food, or the applicable costs of harvesting that fish: resources that are being depleted would last longer. Part of the solution: relocalizing more of our our food supply would decrease waste, provide fresher food with higher nutritional quality (two long-distance tomatoes = one fresh local),help rebuild our ecomony (about $2 billion leaves the Province to pay for the food we bring in), and decrease the risk food shortages (we're depending on trucks regardless of the weather and fuel prices). Waste not, want not - it's a start.

Re: “Organic basket case

Do you remember what those first strawberries of the season tasted like right out of the garden? The peach you picked that dripped juice down your chin? The corn you picked and immediately cooked that tasted so good that you ate three cobs? But, hold on – where’d that taste go? For the last 20 odd years we’ve been seduced by advertising promising quick and easy and tasty – but they left out the tasty. And through those years, while we allowed our food to be “manufactured”, the farmers who were “growing” food got left behind. Many couldn’t compete with factory food, sold their land, and went elsewhere to work. Those who refused to give up saw their income fall, their kids leave, and their communities diminished. But a revolution is beginning, starting with the young people who have, of course, the most to gain because it is about the quality and quantity of food for the future. It’s not surprising that there’s a shortage of good food - organic and local - because the growing demand exceeds the capacity of existing local farmers. And for new farmers – finding land and money to get started is a huge challenge. And by the way, it’s not surprising that some farmers choose to retain produce for regular customers – because they’ve become more than customers, they’ve become friends. So if you’re interested in good, healthy local and organic food get to know a farmer. And if you’d like to go a bit further, help persuade government leaders to change the regulations that make it easier for you to buy manufactured and long-distance food than local. Can’t wait for those fresh strawberries …..
