local foods

"What happens to the food supply when domestic energy costs match those of Europe? What happens in the case of a lock-down imposed by natural disaster, weather, disease or terrorism? What happens if global warming disrupts standard food networks, and forces the abandonment of now productive lands? In these terms local foods are strategic to the nation as the Marine Corps and the Pentagon." ~Justin IIsherwood in his regular column featured in the Portage County Gazette~

What can you do to assist with these "what happens if" scenarios?
