OWS Supporters -- this is a reminder to consider adopting a plant-based diet for the good of the environment, and the good of your fellow beings. (Better health is a good side benefit too -- and indirectly addresses national health and healthcare issues.)

Going vegetarian -- better still, vegan -- is becoming recognized as one of the single most significant things an individual can do to better one's community/the planet. (Frankly, I think "thinking veg" makes for a more sensitive perspective -- imagine if the 1% all became vegans -- I wonder if they would still be the cut-throat ruffians they are now.)

Of course, if you can also plant your own garden and grow your own veggies, even if your not a total vegan or vegetarian, not only will you have fresher healthier food, develop a positive lifestyle, and save money, you will also mitigate and undermine your dependance on the 1%'s corporate food industry.

Whoever thought; eating veggies and gardening is being a revolutionary!

Yes! I like meat but planted four fruit trees in the yard this year. I'm afraid my record with houseplants is zero out of five. I'm game to try a garden though!

I think Thomas Jefferson did! :D

Good points and I totally agree. I will also add...shop locally from farms and farmer's markets. There are websites for CSA farms http://www.localharvest.org/csa/ and other local produce in your area. You can also contact your local state extension service and they can provide lists of farms in your area.
We have blueberry and strawberry picking farms too but I don't use them if they are not organic. I buy raw milk from farms, eggs, and I can also get grassfed beef and buffalo for my dogs ( I'm vegetarian).

We can clean up the planet, grow more food to feed starving people, conserve our drinking water, and reduce animal suffering by going veg. This is where it begins, with each decision we make, we take personal responsibility for our community.
