Also, planting this vegetable garden will help the environment. (www.kidsforsavingearth.org) To help save money on fertilizer you can make a compost pile. Fertilizer will help your plants get their nutrients and give an extra boost in growing. A compost pile is just food that has been broken down into nutrients that will help fertilize your garden. If you do not want to do that you can buy it at your local garden shop.
The defining characteristics of this movement, are the members of a community all coming together to start a garden on a piece of land. Some cities are encouraging of this if the garden is started without permission, though on occasion will cave in to pressures from other corporations who want the land themselves. Although sometimes technically "squatting", community gardens often will serve as a way to feed lower income families, and even provides jobs (Archambault). Community gardens are a positive influence in the food world; this essay will explore how and why. These gardens, which are basically agricultural markets, serves as a way to find and serve food that has been directly cared for by its patrons, who are the same people that end up with a meal from these gardens.
Michael Pollan suggests how industrial food system is unsustainable because of monocultures, which means a lot of the same species are grown together and that’s only possible by using antibiotics to keep them alive. To keep crop healthy, fertilizer is needed. For example, in Iowa, all the farms were corn and soybeans, which are for industrial use mainly. Separating the animals from the farms raises a huge sanitation problem and the animals are not happy with the conditions, a pollution problem occurs as well. Society is obsessed with productivity becoming cheap, which has made more problems regarding pesticides.
Hay is, in fact, quite nutritious and contains most of the basic constituents required in the diet. Green food: There is virtually no limit to the amount of green foods available for guinea pigs. Domestic greens may include cabbage, lettuce, peas, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi and cauliflower. Wild green foods may also be collected and can include such items as seeding grassed, dandelions, chickweed and clover. In collecting wild foods, beware of the poisonous plants and avoid areas which are likely polluted.

In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements of Science 9 Submitted by: Macam, Victoria Liz C. Escabarte, Chrystine Hace A. Navarro, Carl Louie T. Abstract: The researchers came up with the problem, “Can vitamins affect the growth of plants?” Many investigations were made regarding this problem yet the researchers wanted to clarify everything and tested the effectiveness of the vitamins with their own eyes. The researchers arrived with this problem because they wanted to know if there is a difference between organic and inorganic fertilizer and human vitamins. Lastly, the researchers wanted to help the farmers in providing a safer and more effective way of having healthy plants. Vitamins are important for the growth of plants. Based on other investigations, vitamins which are made up of organic compounds can help plants grow by providing them with essential nutrients.
My ethical perspective doesn’t make a lot of money for companies, so I was quite surprised to see the similarities. Just a few glimpses of those similarities can be seen right from their strategic plans: Social Responsibility Statement: Kudler Fine Foods uses only the finest organic ingredients. Whenever possible, we purchase local produce from organic farmers. We use unbleached flour in our bakery goods and we don’t add unnecessary preservatives to our products. Food is rotated from the shelves on an ongoing basis.
I don’t think places like New Seasons are the answer, but rather a more holistic approach would be more efficient in addressing these issues. I think this must essentially be a combination of stores, such as co-ops, mom and pops, farmers markets, as well as edible green spaces and community gardens. This takes me to a video I saw on YouTube about City Slicker farms concerning problems experienced in West Oakland, and how the rise of large-scale grocery retailers resulted in a lack of food options in the country’s inner-city neighborhoods. Another documentary I rewatched was “the Garden”(which I highly recommend to everyone), about the South Central Urban Farm in Los Angeles, CA that maintained an unprecedented
Politics of Food Essay #1 In Wendell Berry’s essay, “The pleasures of eating”, he goes into great detail about how people have become lazy and very ignorant about where their food comes from or what they are actually eating. He also goes into detail about how we are eating unhealthy foods as well. Even though most of the things that are sold at a supermarket or a store contain unhealthy things. At first glance, my diet may seem more on the healthy side. My mom looks at the ingredients in whatever she is going to but before she buys it.
