having my garden, and eating it too--or else
Just stumbled across this very cool enviro news site, thanks to an article I browsed on Salon.com. So this dude says we must sustainably farm, or we all starve to death. (Okay, I exaggerate a bit, but you now get my point very clearly, no?)
Anyway, it put me in mind of the Kenyan slum gardener. He's definitely on to something, probably much bigger than he even imagined...
In theory, of course, I support the thesis that sustainable food growing is the way to go. Do I believe it's truly possible for the whole world, in these times, to go this route? Nope, not really. Not right now, that's for sure. In some ways, I can really foresee another extinction coming our way...and it might be us. Some people these days know how to grow their own food, live where they can do just that, and have the time and inclination. But most of us...nah. It will be very, very interesting to see where we end up.
Food for thought...ahem.
