You know, when Americans spent 1.5 billion dollars in several days last week to win the mega millions, not only does it seem absurd, but on the other hand, it also shows collective clout if we learn some things and get behind them. Produce and animal farmers these days are starting up CSAs (google it), and if a group of people sit down and figure how much produce, eggs, milk, beef, chicken, etc. are costing, and we work to eliminate the grocery middle man with the high fructose corn syrup, we can collectively turn heads.
If you live in a city, get together as a group, find a farmer that would deliver if there’s enough interest, tell the farmer what you want, when you want it, run the numbers and both sides can end up with better nutrition and save some money (to buy lottery tickets
) There are places that are doing this. It requires trust on both sides, and some leadership and organization that has to be worked out. Just a thought.
