Scorched Earth: The Destruction of The Food System

There has been a torrent of proposed ideas and policy changes, that if implemented, would not only incinerate family farms, they would destroy our food system and bring about the greatest famine this country has ever seen.

This is an introduction to this series, Scorched Earth, where we will take an up close and personal look at these policy changes coming down the pike, that i feel will have the most immediate and devastating effects. There is way too much information to include into one article, but it’s so important we can’t skim over it either.

The first of these I’d like to cover is proposals from the FDA. You can take a look at it for yourself here if you’re up to reading through the 152 page Guidance.

This is a call to every home gardener to continue your growing and begin to network with friends and family to secure and protect your food source and if you can expand! “The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone” -Bill Mollison

I am daughter, I am learner of the traditions. I carry them forward so that the Elders and Ancestors may be remembered for all time. I am also Mother. I am here so that the image of The Mothers love could be brought into existence. I shall always carry the sacredness of this honor with me.
