Food can only truly be valued the same way it should be grown; with patience and acknowledgement of the ecosystem that supports it. Let’s grow deeper roots in our community and turn our heads from the current trends of “disruption” and fast economies, because the relationships with our fellow New Yorkers and farmers is the ecosystem needed to lead a food system that is strong and authentic.
Don’t just buy food. Let’s spend our dollars on food that means something to us and represents a life that we want to live.
What’s your vision of a healthy food system? Send us an email to FUN@LocalRootsNYC.org and we’ll develop these ideas into an art project we can share with other New Yorkers.
