Title: Village: Food
A set of links to topics of interest to the
Self-Sufficient Sustainable Village
What is more basic than food? It is (one of) our (few) primary, daily,
with the Universe. Providing it for ourselves is a radical, subversive act,
but no more radical or subservsive than the siezure of this capability by

some kind of organization, I've broken it up into the elements of the process:
locally self-sufficient system
American Community Gardening Association
Community Supported Agriculture.
Permaculture Visions Leaders in permaculture by correspondence.
InterGarden - Organic agriculture, farmscaping, permaculture,
Home page from University of Arizona,
Federal sources of information on sustainable ag
Organic gardening: Not clear who authors this page, but
it has some links to topics like composting, using earthworms,
Gardening resource list
Catalogue of gardening catalogues
Organic farmers home page,
a jumbled list of links, some of which are already here
Alternative Farming Systems Information Center
Seed catalogs catalogs that are committed to open-pollinated,
Sustainable Ag and Greenhouses , from Life Support Technologies, a
page from the
Institute for Planetary Renewal.
Still searching for info on indigenous methods of food preservation (after
all, people have been eating for some 10,000 years, and only in the last
50 or so has most of our food been preserved by mega-corporations...if we
are going to be self-sufficient, we'll have to relearn old methods). A few
links to the more contemporary institutionalized, industrialized system:
How to eat what we grow...
