This morning I watched a very important film called The Need to Grow and immediately went on a crusade to share it with the world.
It hit me so profoundly that I want to help in whatever small way that I can, so for me being a blogger, writer, and freelancer, my way is sharing the news.
Why should you care?
Do you know where your food comes from? Do you care whether the food you eat is poisoned or at least tainted by GMOs and pesticides? What about your kids and theirs?
Do you realize that if we keep going the way we are, we will run out of healthy soil and will not be able to farm at all???
I blogged about this over on my other blog Words on a Page and then I shared that blog on all of my social media channels (except Instagram) (only because I don’t know how yet)
I’m going to share it here too, just in case you don’t want to go visit my other blog-here is the link:
I have a head start at least if I plan to make some changes at home. I recycle. I grow indoor herbs and vegetables that can be moved outside for a starter garden.
I can make a vow here and now that you can help me be accountable for, I will try.
I have pets and other challenges, but if I can do a vertical garden, that will work well! Plus, my husband won’t have to mow around my garden.
Or, maybe I tell him my plan and he even HELPS me grow a garden. I mean, he has recently jumped on the “get healthy” bandwagon too!
He eats better, exercises almost every day, works out with weights, he has dropped from 206 to 177 in just three months!! I hate him (just kidding) but I AM jelly!!
Together, we can do our part to help change the planet by changing our thinking. Industrial farming is killing us. Monsanto knows this, yet they don’t stop their way of farming.
This film is the answer to the problem in the movie Idiocracy-unfortunately, it’s all coming true!! Go watch it again if you don’t believe me!
We can also start supporting our local farmer’s markets, stop shopping at Walmart for our produce, although that will be a challenge for me. I’d rather grow my own than convince the hubs to stop going to Walmart. 😉
Please take just one hour out of your day to watch this ground-breaking film, everyone has to eat, so everyone should be part of the solution.
Let me know your thoughts and ideas after you watch it please!!
