Food prices and security

The recent Hay on Earth sustainability workshops focused tightly on food security with the release of the Growing Wales project, aiming to create a nation-scale, open source food security project.

The importance of the learning about and sharing food are starkly reminded in this article in the Guardian, which shows that the UN Food and Agriculture organisation and OECD predict that food prices will increase by 40% in the next decade. Apart from the forecasts that the global demand for food will increase by 100% by 2050 as more people eat meat and dairy products, this price hike spells big trouble for the billion or so people in the world who are so poor they don’t know where their next calorie is coming from, let alone their next meal. That’s not good for them, or us.

At the 2010 Do Lectures, Peter Segger will be talking about the importance of rebuilding our lost soils by smarter growing practice, to lock up carbon as well as produce food. The soil at Peter’s farm at Blaencamel near Aberaeron on the coast of Wales is so full of life, you can almost hear it singing.

Our job is to share that song, and the food, with others.
