Part 2: The Politics
How much petroleum does it take to get a banana from Costa Rica to your fruit bowl?
How much erosion does the soil suffer to support cash crops that the soil was never meant to support?
How many farmers never eat the food that they grow? How many are no longer farmers because of a global economy that has industrialized the production and distribution of our most basic resources?
How, in such a short amount of time, have we lost all abiltiy to rely on ourselves for the gathering and preparation of our own food?
How have we lost the ability to rely on ourselves for our basic survival?
And why does the food that comes from the grocery store taste nothing like the food that comes from our neighbouring farmer’s fields?
