Alice Water = farming dignity

I read this in the 'hemisphere' magazine on the airplane to visit C one time. It is so true it makes me grit my teeth when I read it. Beyond what we grow and save, we will spend more money at the Co-op for local doods this year.

HEMISPHERES: What is the one thing that we don’t understand about food?
WATERS: That it’s precious. We need to pay for it. We need to pay for the food and pay the people who produce it. That’s profound and terribly important. We still think we can get it for free. And you know, it’s that idea that we have been indoctrinated to believe, that food should be fast, cheap and easy. And it’s really that kind of thinking that is destroying the world.
