It is hard to make sense of what you read. What food production can do to an economy, monoculture destroying habitats, hedge funds skewing prices, fair trade a label not a given.
I read signs locally sourced, noble I am sure but a tad meaningless? Locally sourced is the easy bit. The quest for perfect and cheap food is stifling locally grown squeezing it until it no longer breathes. Food distribution chains are convoluted and long, at what price? Should I feel remorse with each purchase, weighed down with these burdens, tangled up in the ethics.
Maybe, I am overthinking..............
I do need to be mindful. Thinking about the seasons. Buying only what we need, food waste is terrible, we are so disconnected from food production that throwing it away is all too easy. Reading the labels.
I am not evangelical, just quietly doing what I think is right.
