The world is finally getting back to basics. People are beginning to ride bikes to work again, grow their own veg again, cook their own meals again - from local produce, and take local holidays. But will the trend last long enough and grow strong enough to save humanity? As global warming increases humanitys ability to grow food crops will decline and global food shortages will occur, followed by riots then civil unrest and wars as populations begin to starve. Hence the importance of supporting and encouraging local farmers now, and learning to grow our own food now. Apart from helping to reduce our carbon footprint, and reduce the contribution to global warming, it also gives a little insurance and acts as a small buffer against the coming global food crisis.
Kalamunda Farmers Market yesterday was its twelfth week and first wet day, but we still had over 1000 visitors. Celebrity chef Neville Passmore showed shoppers how to make some quick and easy recipes using fresh local ingredients. Am now on the way to a workshop in New Zealand.
