food sovereignty is the heart of the revolution

Lets mobilize this process started by thousands of farmers, grass roots communities and backyard gardeners. We all have love in our hearts! The realization that we can be linked in love by the very stuff for our survival (food!) is my heartfelt valentines wish. Grow much of your own food this summer, plant enough to share with friends and neighbours, and if not that then buy it directly from the farmers at the market. Ask restaurants to buy from local growers too. Having and cherishing the means for productive sustenance will liberate us.

What a lovely wish...and I so agree with you. I plan to plant a mostly edible garden on my balcony this year, and it's a challenge to find ways to take advantage of every square inch. Happy Hearts Day to you and yours, too.
