This essay “A Call to Farms – Some Thoughts on Food, Money and Nonviolence In Honor of Wendell Berry” by Woody Tasch I read last week seems so right for this moment I have to pass the link on. https://beetcoin.org/blog/a-call-to-farms?goal=0_e9ca84a3ec-1ad24540f7-83841967&mc_cid=1ad24540f7&mc_eid=18594aeaed
A snip: “The question before us, then, is not only how we will mobilize to redress the immediate harm done by militarism. The question is also how we will plant the seeds of a peaceable economy. There is no better place to start than with how we grow food, how we feed ourselves and one another, how we relate to and care for the land.
Let us nurture a great awakening of local conscientiousness, a great coming together in communities and watersheds and foodsheds around the world, so that what Slow Food’s Carlo Petrini calls “virtuous globalization” can sink deep, perennial roots into a complementary process of virtuous localization.
Let us imagine, and then march forthrightly in the direction of, with a kind of affection and gumption for the ages, the vision of millions of individuals in thousands of communities around the world, bringing money back down to earth, in the name of health and peace.”
Laughing Tree Bakery needs your preorders by Tuesday 6PM.
