This past year should be a big wake-up call. We need to get back to feeding our LOCAL communities and not the whole country/world. More traditional farming - small scale, healthy soils, sustainable, rotating 100% pasture-based food system (and without the use of all those chemicals - you CAN grow food without them), and people learning how to grow some of their own food in their backyard gardens.
What are you waiting for?
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant
yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree
with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.
Hugelkultur is really easy! It doesn't destroy habitats like lots of digging and heavy equipment will do, but will work to improve your land and all it's inhabitants. There are many books and videos about food gardens.
You would be surprised what you can do with tiny acreage and a grassy lawn! Lawns are useless and dead space - turn them into food gardens! You can grow edible landscaping on just 1/4 acre! We need to think more about WHERE our food comes from and who we are supporting. Future generations are at risk, and we need to go back to the basics. Think about it! When you mow your lawn, you are 1) wasting your time, 2) wasting your energy, and 3) using precious fossil fuels & polluting. Instead, you could be providing for some of your basic fruit and vegetable requirements! As the saying goes, weeds are only misunderstood plants and most are of value in an ecosystem. Youtube is filled with videos about how to convert an existing lawn into a living forest filled with food and medicine! It's simple, and you can do it anywhere.
Permaculture uses what you have on your own land to grow food. It's simple! It disturbs the existing ecosystems as little as possible, and mimicking the forest by planting full ecosystems vs. just single fruit trees. Using what you already have on hand is key to growing and also gives you a place to put things you would otherwise burn or bury: inputs such as manure/shavings from egg laying chickens or livestock, dead leaves, fallen trees and branches, composted fruits and vegetables you can build garden beds right on top of existing lawn with no digging!
