Do They Teach Home Economics Anymore?

January 31, 2008 at 7:36 am 2 comments

As the new depression continues to grow, Americans can expect the abundance of available foods to return to the ways of old. While farmers will have to deal with rising input costs, the smart farmers using permaculture techniques can keep their costs lower than fertilizer-addicted mono-croppers.

This video serves as a reminder of how a century of advertising de-programmed humans from having to think about their food – and food means survival.

Suggestion: If you get laid off, volunteer to help Farmers Market vendors and get to know them!

    Thanks for sharing this with your readers. I found Ann’s book to be a fascinating read. Amazing how we’ve grown accustomed to how food ‘appears’ on the shelf.
    Part 3 will be coming out, hopefully, next week. She has some suggestions.

    Looks like they pulled the video, was it THAT inflammatory or is there an IP issue?
