A while ago I saw somewhere on the sustainability/edible gardening part of the net I hang out in something that said:
- If you can, grow it yourself
- If you can’t grow it yourself, buy local
- If you can’t buy local, buy organic
There are many good reasons to eat homegrown, local or organic (including taste â€“ homegrown sweetcorn beats the sweetcorn from the market, and the market sweetcorn beats the supermarket corn hands down), but my reasons are sustainability and peak oil.
