Another Teeny Tiny but incredibly exciting post

Hi All,

Well it’s exciting to me! I can see the principal and premise of this little excerpt from one of the River Cottage episodes being transferable to so many tiny towns slowly bleeding to death from a loss of primary industry and the invasion of supermarkets bottom lines. Can you imagine going back to small corner stores, farmers markets, the primary producer being actually rewarded for their efforts to give us nutritious food and local economies benefitting from it all? Thats the incredibly exciting idea put forward by this group of unappologetic Veg Propaganarists in this treatise of hope. I love it and I think that it could be particularly beneficial to our own welfare state of Tasmania where hope is doing the opposite of “springing eternal” at the moment. Why on earth are we selling our natural assetts to the lowest bidder when we could be revitalising our communities and injecting hope and vital education at the same time? Methinks I may have just found what I am meant to be doing on this earth!

    Great video! It’s such a smart idea to grow vegetables all around any city (it should be EVERY city) because they’re still just as pretty as plain flowers, but makes fresh, healthy edibles more accessible. How do we start more programs like this up all across the globe now? I’m all in. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Me too Hannah…I am starting to think that this might just be my own personal calling to start something like this in Tasmania. There is so little hope here and our unemployment rate is quite high (not like Greeces yet though!) and something like this would reunify our area and give people back a sense of hope and the ability to learn how to gain a degree of food security and locality. I am excited just replying to this comment! ๐Ÿ™‚
