We eat every day. What we eat affects our health and how our food is produced affects not only our health but has to do with other people’s lives (the work they do, how well they are paid and so on. This post is a quick round up of posts on the place of food in our lives.
First is a story of neighbourhood re-generation – about communal ownership of land and food growing in Brixton (where the riots took place) in England. This is part of a growing trend in the UK and US (though sadly not in Australia – where I’m from).
Next are a couple of posts from Organic Jar. The first is about how to eat in a more healthy and ecological way. It is ten tips on eating green. This includes diet (advocating a raw diet – about which I have significant reservations), social justice (buying Fair Trade) and ecology (organic, less packaged). It is a great post which manages to balance the personal, social and planetary. A great list to stick up on the fridge and keep as a reminder.
Finally to the very domestic level. Five plants you can easily grow organically at home. They are: aloe vera, pole beans, carrots, herbs (companion planted), and lettuces. These don’t take much time or looking after, and can form a good part of our diet.
If we change how we produce our food and what we eat our society will change: from the roots up!
If you know of any inspiring stories about new ways to produce food or good information about eating organically and locally, please let me know in the comments. Looking forward to hearing from you.
