Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Part of another really important area of agriculture is that of countries like the UK. Even with the facilities and technology countries are over looked. Why is this an issue?

Well lets look at this pragmatically, in the event countries where food is imported, current farming in these countries will be expected to take up the slack. This is horrendous, but sadly true. Worse still because of cost... *sigh* Farming is neglected and so are the farmers. This is an untapped resource. One that has knock on effects.

By correcting out internal input [using the UK specifically] not only can we set an example, but encourage more self sufficiency. As the link suggests* this poses some serious issues. When tourism out ranks farming, one could say we've lost the plot... (Ok you can hurt me for that one) However it is a fact that tourism brings currency, but currency can only buy if there is available which they probably won't be because of the faulty monetary system we exist in.

Many of this issues can be correct with a paradigm shift, but still to the here and now. Short term requires and increase in local production to maximise independence, allow continents like Africa to redistribute their own food within their own country.

Extensive exchange programs could be set up and proper education globally could be enhanced with strong agriculture and even better still automating as much as possible in the country in order to free experience farmers here to go abroad and teach until countries with Africa have the educated numbers with which to maintain automated farming, at which point this would a stage when the continent would no longer be a third world, but a strong member on the international community. Regretably it has to be sad it is the wealtheir countries like the UK that hold them back. I am sorry, but I cannot change everything I can however empathise with those feel that it is the UK that perpetuats the cycle. I would agree, but also point out to break it we need to radically change our wh*** thought process. Not just little problems like food shortages, the cause of these is still prevelant and thus will only be reduced. Removed the cause, remove the problem.

An urban paradise? Charlotte meets people growing their own veg in the heart of London.

Farming Today hears how the current generation are more likely to grow their own.

Farmers could soon make more money from tourism than from farming.

"When tourism out ranks farming, one could say we've lost the plot". I like your sense of humor. :D Puns aside, you bring up some great points. Even in modern, industrialized nations like the US and those in Europe, neglecting farms and the farmer is a serious mistake. An army might run on its stomach, but the rest of the country probably does too.

I also like how you manage to tie it in with EVOKE's different missions. Money, sustainability, and agriculture are all hopelessly entwined, so why not do something about all of them? "Remove the cause, remove the problem" is a great mantra to think about throughout all of these missions.

Thanks, and keep up the good work!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
