The Ugly TRUTH About Industrial Agriculture | What Permaculture Offers

Whether you are an omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan, the vast majority of us in North America depend on food from grocery stores for survival and thus, industrial agriculture.

But how often do we stop to critically think about the food on our grocery store shelves…? Where it was grown, how it was grown, what chemicals were used, were humans exploited for labour to bring us this product…? Your bag of avocados wasn’t always so finely packaged in plastic and intelligently branded using green marketing to exploit your attention and encourage consumerism.
Asking yourself these questions is to begin to understand your food supply chains and to learn the TRUTH about industrial agriculture.

While we are dependent on industrialized processes for food, they don’t NEED to stay the way they are. There are alternative and positive solutions for feeding our populations – you just need to know where to look and how to get started!
