Permaculture Gardening For Food Security
Since early 2020, just about the entire world has been through one major media-reported crisis after another. The stories now are of course around Russia and Ukraine, but there are also a lot of articles coming out about impending shortages in the food supply. In this article, I make a case for incorporating permaculture gardening into your lifestyle.
The blocking of truck deliveries across borders, the delay of ships off major ports, the tripling of materials and shipping costs, American energy independence gone, and the trucking industry protests in Canada and the USA all contribute to forward-thinking concerns about the supply of food.
A friend sent me this photo from downtown Los Angeles, California. I’ve already noticed that my local grocery store has had sparsely-stocked shelves two or three times in the last two months!
The Rockefeller Foundation released a report in February calling to defund farms and ranches and centralize control of the food supply of the globe. In a ‘messaging guide’ for the report, the foundation states that “one of the consistent needs expressed by those seeking to transform the food system is a shared narrative.” IMHO, globalist entities shouldn’t be granted solitary control over anything, so hopefully the Rockefellers aren’t successful in defunding farmers and ranchers!
In the meantime, We the People can (and should) prepare our own resilient systems of food production that WE control, rather than some outside entity. If peaceful trucker protests against forced injection in Canada resulted in frozen bank accounts, then perhaps permaculture gardening ahead of any food crisis will assure food sovereignity if the planet’s food supply is taken over.
