Imagine, if you will, an apple as the world. Now, cut the apple into 4 equal pieces. Throw 3 pieces away; this represents the ocean. Now split the 1/4th piece in half; this represents inhospitable land. Cut the remaining piece in half to eliminate the land with roads and cities. The peel of this very tiny piece of apple represents the land upon where food can be grown. Every year, America loses over a million acres of farmland. We can’t afford it.
Current corporate farming techniques do not replenish the land. As population continues to grow more and more land is needed. If you think your fruits and vegetables are expensive now, realize you are not paying the true cost and that cost will be passed onto our children. Corporations do not make good farmers because they want to make as much profit right “now” and deal with the consequences of that “later.”
What are your options? Quit buying fruits and vegetable from corporations. Buy all your food, as you are able, from those who are responsible. Buy from those who care about our world and our future. Buy from those who make an honest living for an honest day of work. The only vote, that we truly have, is with our dollars. How you spend your money has consequences that are bigger than your purchase. Start researching today, where your food comes from.
