    Very important video. This is how we will fight against Big corporations Like Monsanto who are affecting our health and well being, and Government agencies like the FDA who are letting them do it. Food is freedom and our freedom is being taken away when our food is being controlled in the manner it is by the FDA and Monsanto without public knowledge.

    I knew a guy who worked for Monsanto. They have some pretty 'interesting' PR tactics.

    Gotcha..yeah Monsanto is very shady in that area, and they seem to paint a nice happy picture. There's a reason why 80% of america AND canada have no clue this is going on. Possibly even more than 80%

    We grow what we can ATM: The down side up north is the relatively short part of the year that you can grow anything outside. But we are considering to build a greenhouse with solar power that would have fertile temperatures. The down side is that lighting the greenhouse during the winter when the sun is up for only few hours can get costly if we dont figure something out.

    Already we grow our potatos, carrots, peas, tomatos, onions, lettuce, spinach, spring onion, herbs like basil, dragon, dill.
    We have four big apple trees, five rows of rasberry bushes, ten bushes of currants (black and red).

    We buy as much local meat and eggs as we can, eat the seasons foods, when ever possible we buy the organic option. Every year we get reindeer or moose meat in the freezer. Buy a bulk of freshly bucher'd beef
    from a local farm and freeze it.

    Growing your own food is not only ekological and healthy, it is also very economical. I think that one of my goals in life is to get to a point where we would be 80% self sufficient. When you grow your food you dont have to work so hard elsewhere to get the money to buy it. Ofcourse land and living space cost money, but I have plans...

    Yup..Food is freedom brother. Do you not get enough sun light to grow food without a green house? I thought about a greenhouse too, but wouldn't it be pretty pricey to get?

    At summer time there is enough light and its hot too, (at mid summer the sun doesnt set at all) but come winter the sun is up only 5 hours on average. The greenhouse can be expensive if you buy it, but who says you have to buy it? you can build it too. A lo-fi version would be to get some see-thru plastic "canvas" & some 2x4's. If you want it to make sure there is something between the wood and the land... Make a frame from the 2x4's and tighten the canvas over it. If you dont have to worry about freezing temperatures this kinda deal will do nicely.

    The problem is that people won't wake up. We as Americans need to see hundreds of thousands of people die before we do anything about it. That's whats wrong with this country..we dont care, we are oblivious to the world.

    You are right about one thing, America is the most unaware and uncaring country in the entire world.

    How about you do some actual research on the matter and realize that What america and the government is actually doing to our food. I like how people talk shit on something they didn't do any research about, and pass it off as a doomsday theory. It's far from that, and actually it's already happening right now. Educate yourself retard, you won't be talking much shit after you do.
