"It is too easy to say that we are supportive of this and quite another
to do it. We can't change the world, but we can change what we ourselves
And a change in habits of 10% of us creates new markets."
We also need to let other people, farmers and non farmers alike know
what we're doing as individuals. The communities that we and other like
minded folks out there want will develop slowly, and will be as
difficult work as running a viable farm, but the results will be solid
Anita, I checked out http://www.thehungersite.com. The companies that
are sponsoring the donations seem legitimate. I'll visit the site
often, and I recommend that other readers do the same.
On Alex's mention of CBOs: Community Based Organizations benefit by
donations and the volunteer work you do there. I've noticed that many
talented people shy away from doing board work with CBOs feeling that
they somehow aren't qualified to provide effective management and policy
making direction. They're wrong. Anyone who farms or has been involved
in research and education has the perspective and judgement necessary to
serve well. Do it. Our communities will be better for your work.
By the way, I no longer make any political donations. I prefer Alex's
and Anita's agenda.
