    Thumbs Up Local Region Econoculturism

    I believe this is the most effective and simple ecology for humans. It certainly is reliable. Some may be bored by it, but not me. I actually enjoy being confined like that.

    Care to explain "Local region econoculturism" a bit and tell us why it works for you? Any links? Books to recommend?

    Thanks in advance

    You know, staples, guaranteed goods that a local region produces and trades as cash crop. No imperialism needed. Accept what you have, cherish it.

    Here we have neighborhood Farmers' Markets. Really, just parking lots where a couple days a week farmers and gardeners sell produce, some value-added like jams and breads, to the people in the area. The stuff is mainly organic and as cheap or cheaper than in the grocery stores.

    We have a small garden in our small back yard which supplies our vegetables and a farm 50 miles away where we grow popcorn and fruits and have a couple of bee hives. Popcorn comes dry enough to store off the stalk and can be ground into meal or flour. Every fall the walnuts come in as a bumper, although they have a very strong taste. I've tried growing flax for the seeds and fiber, but haven't succeeded yet.

    I think the "back to nature" movement of the 1960s and 70s failed for most people who tried it because they wanted to be spectators of nature instead of a part of nature. It's hard work and a real battle you can easily lose if you let nature get out of hand. This is shaping up to be one of those years.

    A wet spring made tilling late so planting was late. Hotter than normal temperatures and record rainfalls continue. The weeds (the main enemy) are growing rank so you have to hoe them out until the corn is tall enough to shade them out. At this lattitude that means watering the ground with your sweat and getting a red neck. Hopefully by July the rains will subside and the corn can be left to ripen on its own.

    There's absolutely no economic insentive for me to be doing this. Food is cheap and time is money. I guess you could say it's my true religion.

    This is great Louky. I try to raise leafy vegetables, squash, corn, snow peas and maybe something exotic I can't always buy.

    It doesn't work very well this far north, but as far as it works it's a great idea. It should form the base of a nation's economy, and a region or nation should not buy in from elsewhere what it can produce itself. In Britain we get apples and lamb from New Zealand, beef from Argentina, electrical goods from China etc.

    But they can all be made and bought there in Britain...

    I bought my first alcohol from Yorkshire and the next I'll be getting from Newcastle. Sam Smith right now.
