Will Social Networks Set Local Food Free?

      As we have seen the Foods Sovereignty movement of  La Via Campesina has recently spread across the States. The emergence of this “peasant movement” in the “First World” is do to the Global economic depression and the crack down on small local farmers in the name of Food Security.

I was just introduced to an online network that could revolutionize the Food Sovereignty movement, it is called Community Share Association. The Community Share Association “is a private association of American citizens who have chosen to reclaim our constitutional right to be legally liable and 100% responsible for the choices we make, most specifically with regards to food, medicine & health care.

As members, we reclaim our right to determine for ourselves whether any food, medicine or professional service is safe and effective for us and in so doing we alleviate all state & federal government from being liable for our safety. We do this most specifically to restore our protected right to buy and sell our homegrown & homemade food and medicine to and from other members of our association.

Community Share Association will become a huge movement empowering those individuals and communities who choose to become members to use their private land and homes to produce more food, to make delicious food products, as well as safe, effective herbal medicines and have access to a thriving marketplace where they can legally sell these products to other members.”

The legality is explained in the about section, to be a member costs a mere $10  a year. I am not a member yet so I can’t give any more specifics, but this looks like it could become the facebook of the local food movement. If anyone is a member of this network I would love to hear about your experience.

A few other recent happenings on the food sovereignty front: Occupy Wall Street started the initiative – Occupy The Food Supply

Interestingly enough even the USDA recently released a guide on Regional Food Hubs stating “The guide is a collection of information, resources and background on everything needed to develop or participate in a regional food hub.” The National Good Food Network also has a page for local food hubs.

Power to the hands that are caring for their local soils and the health of their communities!

  1. Now you can become a member for $1 if you don’t care to post ads, or $12 if you do want to post ads. For $120 we can help you set up your home business using the Association for in person sales (as well as online if applicable), 100% legal without ANY of the standard governmental hoops and fees. This latter option is especially good if you are doing raw dairy or other backyard produce and also is great for bodyworkers, herbalists, alphabiotics, reiki and other alternative health practitioners.
