Another Article Which Makes the Case for Localism

Thanks to Louise Mann for this article from the New York Times which, again, makes our case that the national food distribution system is failing to offer us secure and safe food. This just underscores our mission to work with Glasgow City Government to get a garden plot program going to provide a place and means for locals to return to growing some of their own food, and to establish the Bounty of the Barrens Market to provide a place for bigger producers to exchange their locally grown food for local dollars at a festive marketplace.

Plans are underway and work is being done every day to bring these projects to fruition this year. By the looks of these news articles, which are appearing with greater frequency, we are not a minute too soon!
