About Emily

An idea worth spreading

Every child should get a chance to be creative, to explore every opportunity available, and get free reign to be artistic, innovative and to be so without judgment or persecution. Therefore, I believe the arts should be introduced to every child in elementary schools so that every child can get a chance to not think they’re crazy or stupid, because they can't sit still and pay attention to what the teachers saying because all they want to do is be artistic :)

Food Quantity vs. Food Quality
Yes I do garden but I have a significantly larger garden. I am able to freeze enough food to sustain my family of 3 for the winter between what I grow and what I purchase from local orchards. Yes I realize not everyone can do this, but even if a majority of the population could grow a garden that would sustain them for a few months or purchase foods on a 100% local scale from farmers, it would be a huge step in bettering food quality and would help with the issue of food quantity.

Food Quantity vs. Food Quality
The average family in Canada spends about $55 per week on fresh produce, if they consume how much vegetables and fruit you are supposed to in a day ( 6-8 servings) 55x52=2860 almost $3000. Yes it would have to be large but it would easily be plausible anywhere but vary large cities in which case yes supermarkets are the best way to obtain food. As for the seasonal problem one can easily freeze or can enough produce to last through a winter. As for the waste, the compost made from previous years makes excellent natural fertilizers for the following years.

Food Quantity vs. Food Quality
The problem of food shortage and food quality could simply be stopped if everyone was able to plant a garden that provided enough food that would sustain a family. The cost of maintaining a garden is incredibly less compared to what we spend at supermarkets. You can save up to 3 thousand dollars a year if you grow enough food. Plus nothing would be wasted and the food would be better then anything you could buy at a suppermarket! Every family would only be growing what they would consume. The food problem around the world would be solved!
