Do you know where your food comes from? Do you know how it was grown and raised? Were any chemicals used? Do you know whether it was genetically modified, fairly traded or sustainably produced? Do you know how long it was in transport and storage or if it was in contact with any contaminants?
Food security is a huge issue and the list of questions just keeps growing. This is especially critical at a time when the industrial food system is so alarmingly centralized and exploitative to the land, to farmers and to animals.
Our food supply is being increasingly threatened by globalization of agriculture, the primary purpose of which is to provide profit for the agricultural corporations. No wonder so many people are concerned about the quality and safety of their food and who controls the food supply.
Community Shared Agriculture restores the connection between people and their food source.
