Philadelphia Water Rate Links Payments to Household Income

Tue, 23 May 2017 13:41:57 +0000

The financial struggle of the poorest Americans is a national concern as wages for those at the bottom fail to keep pace with the rising costs of living: food, housing, medicine, doctor’s visits, and even household water service.

Hummus and Mindfulness: Skills, Resilience and Relaxation beyond Consumerism

Mon, 22 May 2017 11:23:52 +0000

We all have to consume; it’s a necessary reality of existence. However, in the ‘consumer society’ the most radical thing you can do is not to consume ‘as directed’ – by finding alternative options that meets your needs while enacting a set of principles in opposition to that overbearing and exploitative economic paradigm.

Sexy Farmers

Local is the obverse of global. It’s not just a good soundbite to say that we cannot have both a dominant global economy and a thriving local economy. For one is the master and the other the servant.

Homegrown Collective Supper Club

‘What on earth is a supper club?’ I hear you cry! Think of it as a cross between a restaurant and a dinner party. The venue is usually someone’s home, or a pop-up location, and you’re often seated at big tables with the other diners. The feel and set up varies, but expect multiple courses of delicious food and a BYO booze policy.

Inequality & Health: What’s Food Got to Do with it?

Wed, 17 May 2017 11:28:23 +0000

The last decade is a time slot when austerity, neo-liberalism and technological change (the latter not given much attention by the authors) have converged to erode social, environmental and food security protections in almost all countries in the world.

Is Eating No Meat Actually Doing More Harm than Good?

Tue, 16 May 2017 11:55:25 +0000

If we are to move to a genuinely sustainable food system, then I think we all need to become much better informed about the sustainability or otherwise of different food systems.

It’s Not the Grapes

Mon, 15 May 2017 11:55:14 +0000

The Cornish-Rock cross is an ideal partner for the vertical factory model — a model in which bird, agribusinessman, and illegal immigrant plant worker are tightly bound in the same machine that spits out soylent green parts for consumption by the masses. The model that provides cheap protein, provides cheap veggies, provides cheap clothing, provides a cheapened life….

Podcast: How is the New Economy Embodied in a Pint of Beer?

Fri, 12 May 2017 11:11:17 +0000

Craft beer has begun to bring back many of the most important values and characteristics of beer that were lost for so long, going far beyond just taste. This is an important theme that Rob Hopkins, the co-founder of the Transition Town movement and founder of New Lion Brewery, explores throughout the episode.
