“Day in, day out, the work of producing food is still one of the hardest, messiest, most all-consuming, inconvenient and financially risky occupations.”

…The mission for everyone who cares about food — even if you raise chickens or garden tomatoes, can barrel-aged hot sauce, or brew pale ale — should be to buy local. And then buy some more, regularly, every week, month and year. With enough momentum and time, consumer demand may bring on the substantial infrastructure and policy changes that small family farms need to truly thrive.

    Dear Anais,

    There is some new natural technology they are experimenting with in Ethiopia. Its called Warka Water. It takes moisture from the air and condenses it to water in a basket, bamboo and poly netting artifact. It is electricity free and it works in the desert climes. It is simple and very inexpensive to build. I tried to send you a photo but this comment page doesn’t allow attachments.

    I love what you have built and this year I am finally able to start my own on a small personal scale. You inspire me. Thank You,

    Wow, Anais, this is a great program you and the rest of the Dervaes’ have going. Have you considered accepting currency such as bitcoin for the farmstand? The ethos behind bitcoin seem to align with the urban homesteading lifestyle, so I think it would be a great addition to the accepting cash and CC’s (ie. Corporate Cards 🙂 LOL).
