I started this community because of a feeling of impending doom that's been creeping up on me lately in regard to the state of the food we eat today. It seems that every time I look at the news, there is a food being recalled for one reason or another, costs are rising, starvation is growing in third world countries, yet the american public seems to ignore this. I've personally been drawn to the idea that I need to start growing my own food, and have a plan to begin doing this within the next few years on a larger scale than the tomato plants in my windowsill currently provide.
I thought it would be nice to a)have a forum to discuss this topic with like minded people. and b)have a place to collect news articles and links about the subject.
