The Societal Ramifications & Consequences of the Making and Taking of Food

This site dedicated to the matters of food above and beyond the mere satiation of flavors on one's palette; but rather the ramifications to society from the consequences of how its' production, distribution, and nutrition affect living systems. How we sow, reap, harvest, legislate and base our economic systems on food is key to how we ultimately treat each other and the Earth.

Do Not Forget This July 4 is Food Independence Day

The same group that collected enough signatures to encourage our First Lady Michelle Obama to plant an organic garden, are now approaching all Governors across the nation to do the same. This news is per Dan McGovern reporting his Sustainable Food News on Helge Hellberg's An Organic Conversation program on internet radio every Saturday at 10 -11AM.

Per this organization known as the Kitchen Gardeners, we will declare our food independence by sourcing the ingredients for our holiday meals as locally, sustainably and deliciously as possible and let's ask our nation's first families to do the same.

There is a petition to sign here at this link below:
