I think this poster says it all.
It’s amazing how advice given during wartime to help a country feed itself when all spare money and supplies were going to ‘the boys’ can be so pertinent today.
You can look anywhere and see warnings about the ‘food crisis’ we are about to enter. I don’t want to get political or push my opinions, I just want to make note of how different our culture has become. Rather than governments encouraging people to grow their own food, buy less meat, consume less, and be thrifty we are spending billions to create new crops that yield more with less effort.
I think now is as good a time as ever to start looking for ways to be more self-sufficient. No matter how small you start, something is always better than nothing.
