  • Roots of Revolution

    During a TED talk, Ron Finley makes the statement that, “Gardening is the most …. defiant act you can do.“ This brought to mind a natural food store in Eau Claire, WI, where I attended college. Their logo is as follows:

    In a nation where nearly everything we buy is mass produced, it is somewhat unnerving that our food is often in the hands of large agricultural corporations. The things that are most basic to our health are produced by companies that (by necessity) are significantly concerned with the bottom line. Forget about banks that are too big to fail – what about the industrialized agriculture on which we are almost entirely dependent?

    During World War II, home grown “Victory Gardens” produced nearly 41% of all the vegetables in the United States. At the time, it was considered a matter of national security. Now, it is more a matter of health equality, as well as environmental sustainability. As human beings, we should all have access to fresh, healthy food that isn’t controlled by companies concerned with making a profit.
