Hi sir my name is Jonathan Weeks. I attended a rally today put on by a group called "Well Fed Neighbor" concerning the issue of local food production. The current situation would only continue to work if we had no natural disasters or war. The fuel cost of shipping Missourians the food they eat is astronomical and it's crazy!

Let Tastebuds Trump Breath.... Eat Garlic
by Juliana Goodwin, Published in the News-Leader, Sept 1, 2010

A friend has two pear trees just outside Seymour that is loaded with fruit. Joel Randall hates to see them go to waste and would like for folks to pick them. They would make some lovely pear butter.

Folks, this is already accomplished in Singapore...the second highest population density in the world. The outcomes of this bill are anathema to the Well Fed Neighbor plan. One of our goals is to re-populate the rural areas with producers, not stack everyone up in high-rises. Please pay attention to what this bill is trying to accomplish and oppose it. …

Below is a system that I came across due to the help of Dale Jackson. If you haven't taken the time to watch some of his videos on this site, I encourage you to do so. It is well worth the time. Below is a snippet of a local growing operation in Wisconsin. It is good to see this vision is not just in the Ozarks.
Going forward we hope to have some help and info on setting up a sustainable greenhouse local food production operation on a small farm near you. We are looking for diagrams to… Continue
