Grow Your Own

Post by assassin on Sat Jan 28, 2017 3:14 am

Food is a necesssity of life and much of our current food is imported, often from third world countries whose populations are starving, so why are they growing food and having a starving population, commerce is the answer as the powers that be in these countries dont care about the population as long as they grow the food for them to sell.
Food miles is currently a hot topic and this is the amount of miles food has to travel and the energy expended in doing so, remember we may have environmental controls on vehicles but many of these countries dont and often they were vehicles used in other countries which went out of service because they couldn't meet environmental emissions and yet they are pumping out these emissions in another country, this also applies to a considerable amount of farming equipment. When we factor in these emissions and those of ships or planes used to transport food it adds up to a lot of unnecessary emissions, but often out of sight is out of mind.
Food quality is another major issue as most food is intensively farmed food which means it is grown on a diet of chemical cocktails and in poor quakity soils which are often contaminated with various industrial wastes and both the chemical growing agents and industrial contamination is absorbed into the food and untimately into the body when we eat the foods.

By growing our own food, or even a proportion of our foods we can eliminate all of these factors and improve our own health as our food may travel the length of our gardens or from an allotment possibly a couple of miles away, we know it isn't contributing to food miles and not polluting the planet, it isn't the genetically modified food crops people are worried about, it isn't filled with many of the chemical cocktails used in intensive crop production, and we know exactly is going into our food. It is much fresher as we can pick to cook and it can be stored by a variety of means such as freezing or bottling so we can eat seasonal foods out of season.


Economically it makes sense, if we grow a proportion of our own food it is that proportion of food we are not buying, it is that food we are not buying which gives us a saving minus what we have spent on seeds; remember a supermarket sells for profit.

You can trade or barter fresh food, and you can use it to repay a favour.
