Food Localisation

“If you choose to eat mass-produced fast food, you are supporting a network of supply and demand that is destroying local communities and traditional ways of life all over the world – a system that replaces self-sufficiency with dependence. And you are supporting a method of agriculture that is ecologically unsound – that depletes the soil and leaves harmful chemical residues in our food.
But if you decide to eat fresh food in season – and only in season – that is locally grown by farmers who take care of the earth, then you are contributing to the health and stability of local agriculture and local communities.”

Alice Waters, Californian pioneer on the politics of food
