Cook Organic, Not The Planet!

Because I love myself, my family, my community, my country and planet. It is obvious that the way we take care of our land, of animals, of each other has an impact on our well being, our future, the air we breathe and accept to breathe, the stars we see or cannot see anymore, the intensity of the sun, the life on our planet. Prices of food is getting so high, while knowledge of growing an abundance of local organic food on a small scale, for the profit of our communities and each one of us, is available. With this knowledge and a bit of mobilization, it is possible to make organic produces affordable, to lower our transportation costs, the numbers of intermediaries, as well as lower our needs to exploit, pollute and starve third world communities and lands. What are we doing? I beg you all to start your own campaign. Buy, grow and eat organic as best as you can; take your power in your hands; forget about mass action or government begging and corporations' greeds: we are the ones who decide what is going to be in our plate and in the plate of our children, family, and love ones. When in doubt (no GMO labeling, reduced organic standards as with products coming from China and USA) let's chose something else. Time to get creative and do the best we can with what is available, affordable, and set a new direction for food growing and availability to all. Is it just a bad coincidence, or do we have less choice of organic food in mainstream grocery stores these days, the same ones we convinced with so much effort to offer organic food? And prices are getting so high for organic while so low for some non-organic, just so our choices are even more difficult to make? Do I come back home with no green vegetables, or do I buy this cheap non-organic broccoli? Do I buy this $8 cauliflower, or this 99 cents non-organic cauliflower? Or do I skip buying cauliflower this week? We have to be so convinced and we are even seen as extremists to buy a cauliflower for 8 or 9 dollars a piece; or grow our organic garden for food and survival; or even talk about mobilizing our community or neighborhood to consciously grow food together.
