Guest Blogger Linda Hardesty suggeted the Devais utube video and here are her comments: The Dervais family, with their "Path to Freedom" (link), are spreading a truly revolutionary idea. That is the idea that an average family can free themselves from the corrupt system that supplies most of the food in this country. The massive corporations that control food production and distribution have, for the most part, succeeded in throwing off what little government inspection and oversight there was in the past. "Ag-Gag" bills and the criminalization of whistleblowers have led to a place where we are not allowed to know where our food comes from or what kinds of poisons have been applied to it. Growing your own is really the ONLY way to have a safe, reliable food supply. The bright side of this picture is that growing your own food is easier than ever! Not only is it safer - everyone knows that homegrown is the tastiest and freshest food possible. In recent years, modern science and ancient agricultural knowledge have teamed up to give you the ability to grow food on a small amount of land, for less time and effort than it would take to earn the money to buy it. Local, sustainable, organic food gives peace of mind in several ways.
