Life. Change. Expansion. The word YES and CAN DO!
Can we create food sovereignty (not just security)? I believe we can, and we'll do it in small steps. Simple ideas. Creative earthlings. Sovereignty alone will shift the balance of "power" within corporations and governments. As people reconnect with their food and the earth, they cannot help but expand other areas and thus take responsibility back. It's not about economics, Harvard degrees or savings. It's about real, simple power: the mustard seed that moved a mountain. It's advancing through time by going back and rediscovering what was real and good. Not everything was meant to be discarded.
Anything that enhances life.

We can shift the base of power by food alone. Small farmers have the power to do this, not corporate or CAFO farms. In Vancouver BC, urban farming screamed so loud it got the attention of a major credit union that continues to support them in educational funding and awareness campaigns. Richmond BC has a world model for feeding the poor with a "Sharing Farm" that volunteers to grow fresh produce for the food banks. Those well fed humans then moved on to make up many of the volunteers at the farm. Word spread and people from all over the planet have come out to see the complex web of activity. I'm about to duplicate this in another province. Should be an interesting journey...
