Want to enjoy the future? Support local – especially at markets.

Local is Lekker – support local for a better future

Good to see government is waking up to some local and sustainable alternatives that can improve peoples’ lives and the environment: ‘South Africa: Target Local Markets, Smallholder Farmers Told’ – http://allafrica.com/stories/201209050620.html

 

Especially considering this bleak outlook for the projected increase in global staple food prices: http://mg.co.za/article/2012-09-04-climate-change-will-force-food-prices-to-double-by-2030

The bottom line? Buy local: support local producers through markets.

To understand why this is so important, watch films like ‘The Economics of Happiness’ (http://www.theeconomicsofhappiness.org/)
