This video and website are really interesting. Imagine growing your own fruits and vegetables in your backyard? It really is empowering to be able to say no corporate power in that way and become self sustainable. Yes supermarkets facilitate the ability to buy anything at anytime. But not only do they sell us things that are harmful to us in many ways, they could care less about the people that buy or grow the products; as demonstrated by the bad work practices they condone and the throwing of unsold food away every night instead of giving it away to people that actually need it. Supermarkets are expensive especially if you try to buy from the organic section. For some reason they find a way to rip you off even more if you like to eat healthy. However the prospect of having a garden is not only beneficial to you and your family but also to your community and to the environment. Being able to grow your own food safeguards you from harmful chemicals used in foods and meats. Every week we hear about another genetically modified scary tid-bit about Monsanto Corporation. To be able to feed yourself, share that food with your family, friends and even the larger community would be amazing. Like the video suggests, start easy with something small and eventually you can have an edible garden in your backyard :) It’s also an opportunity for you to learn something new, get connected to the land and fight this capitalist system.
Here's a good web site to get you started!
