Do you VALUE the PEOPLE and TIME it takes to grow food?
This is a post I started sometime ago but never finished. So many angles to this topic. So I'm just going to post. Plus I'm testing to see if I can post from this site.
Please do me a favor and tell how you value or don't value the people and time it takes to grow food. I'm interested to see the responses. And it doesn't have to be a dissertation. I'll go first.
I don't truly value the time it takes to grow food because I do it as a side thing, never giving it the time it needs/requires. Always squeezing it in, when I know it really is much more important than other areas of my life.
I know folks don't value the people or time just based on the responses I get when I can't do something because I have to tend to my garden. However, those same individuals think it is cool and want the benefits without labor. Or for paying a reasonable price for it.
I do value the people because I am clear that it takes time, commitment, hardwork to do it...consistently...and to be good at it.
