Encourage planet-friendly food systems and business models
“An organic farmer is the best peacemaker today, because there is more violence, more death, more destruction, more wars, through a violent industrial agricultural system. And to shift away from that into an agriculture of peace is what organic farming is doing.”–Vandana Shiva
- Buy from local farmers and those who grow organically. In the US you can find local farms and farmers markets here.
- Ask your grocery store to carry organic, local and regional products. Tell them how sourcing closer to home can be cheaper and enrich their customers’ communities.
- Encourage schools near you to participate in a farm-to-school program. The National Farm to School Network can help.
