We feel very strongly that the future of our food system is a locally based production system. The average vegetable and/or fruit travels an average of an ASTOUNDING 1500 miles before it hits our plate.
We started 47 Daisies to help with the growing concern that this brings not only to our health but also to our environment. In producing food it should be done in a fashion that works with nature not against it.
There is a raging debate between advocates of local natural food production and conventional agriculture. Can we feed the world's population (or even the population in our town) with small farms? We believe the answer to this question is.....Absolutely! We just have to change the way we think about food and the growing of food.
47 Daisies has implemented an experiment to see if we can grow produce all twelve months of the year.....It should be exciting and we will definitely keep you posted!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
