Self-reliance and sustainability in the 21st century.
It’s a new year, fresh with new possibilities. There are many reasons to be optimistic about 2010, but it doesn’t come without its challenges. This year, we need to take a hard look at our food system, identify the problems, and make the changes necessary to ensure that safe, healthy food is available to all. We need to overhaul our school lunch program, and eliminate the use of growth hormones in dairy operations. Let’s crack down on pollution from industrial farms, and improve living conditions for the animals within them. It’s a tall order, I know. But it can happen, if we continue to make our voices heard.
What changes would you like to see made to our food and agriculture system this year?
