Over this past week, I become extremely attached to this weeks mission of food sustainability and food security. I am already actively aware of these issues at the international and global level, and it is not always easy to take action from such a vast standpoint. So, this mission gave me a chance to make an impact at the microcosmic level. If everyone in the world impacted someone everyday by either donating money, donating food and helping families and charities plant agriculture and put them off of the threshold then we would have a more socially just, economically stable society and many poverish families would get off the streets. So, that being said, this week I helped my neighbor start a community garden. There used to be a provincial school in our neighborhood, and now its just arable land seeing as the city has not purchased the land. So, everyone in my neighborhood is going to plant a primary crop like tomatoes, potatoes, beans etc. so we can eventually send them to the Wesley Center and the Hamilton Homeless shelter so they have fresh vegetables for thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Not only will this re-connect my community, but it will promote sustainable development, local agriculture and we will aid in homeless families and people in need. Also, I volunteered this week at my father’s friend’s farm where I got to harvest tomatoes and lettuce. He then let me take some home where I donated it to my local shelter. It is important for us to give, especially to those who need it.
