The Real Green New Deal continued . . .

See this, first:

Green New Deal spurs conversion to Permaculture?

Then, check this out. I had no idea that Big Ag sends American produce overseas to be processed, and then sends it back for sale, just like other products!

Of course, it’s best not to eat processed food at all, especially since it’s usually GMO with all sorts of chemical poisons added. But good also to realize that land used for food that’s sent overseas to be processed could be used to grow organically, permaculturally, in small, community-based plots . . .

There are Trillions at Stake

    Sending food to another country for processing, where all manner of chemicals and hidden contents may be added allows those companies to avoid FDA regulations is a horrific practice. The good news is that now that hemp has been legalized for growing, the corn farmers can stop buying M. seeds and grow hemp instead. Bit by bit, we are seeing the revolution.
    Those who can garden/permaculture are going to be in high demand for teaching, just as carpenters and those who actually know a skill. We have lost our skills, and need them back! It is my hope that there will be encouragement when the war is over to grow victory gardens again!

      Yes, and things like shoe repair and clothes alteration and so forth. Real skills with tangible results. Especially good with recycled and repurposed materials. All will be needed.

    Yes! My husband a few years ago started buying used hand tools from 100+ years ago on ebay. I thought it odd. Then he started to restore them and build things, lovely things, useful things. A coffee table. A bookcase. He built me a custom work cabinet and bench for the art studio that is amazing. He and a mostly other-profession-ed group meet online at the Hand Tool School, sharing a design or building problems and post pictures of their successes. There is a resurgence happening, a cultivation of skills. It delights me to think that there will be kniting, sewing, the spinning of wool, weaving. Baskets.
    Oh, what we have to look forward to!
