Re: Foodsheds etc.
Hi, this is Lydia
I too am finding the Foodshed discussion very interesting. I too
am wondering how to deal with areas that do not have a rich
resource endowment. Talking about foodshed in CA seems like
sitting at the edge of the cornicopia and saying, "ain't life
grand?" Not everyplace is so greatly blessed. Of course, long
run, not very many people should live in areas without good
topsoil, lots of water, a viable climate. Still, I'd like to
hear how the foodshed does deal with varying geographical food
growing capabilities (of course, all of us would pay much
more for food everywhere if external costs were internalized).
