scas wrote:People here have doubts as to the ability for industrial nations to radically overhaul their food supply upon realization of an impending famine. Personally, i'm slightly more optimistic, but scientists need to sound the call.
Ludi wrote:Scientists have been sounding the call for decades. Why not let them off the hook a bit and sound the call yourself by raising and eating insects and sharing that information with people? Personally, I find people actually implementing the techniques they advocate to be about 1 million times more interesting and persuasive than people who just put ideas out there for someone else to implement.

I have also been surveying our woodlands, and figuring out what to harvest in order to encourage long term sustainable maple sugar production as well as a revitalized old growth forest. It gives me a good feeling that I am starting something that will very likely benefit my children and future generations - and that both my kids are interested in seeing it succeed.

In order for these areas to still produce food the way kill both birds with the same stone is the permaculture/food forest route.
