            Interviewed by Groundswell, where he is a member: "One of the biggest shifts in our work over the past two decades has been thinking about food as agriculture, and production. And now we’re beginning to think about it as actual food. … What we’ve realized by working on an agricultural focus [is that] in a sense we were alienating farmers and … excluding them from the wealth of urban people. So now that we’re working with urban people, and we’ve realized how much they spend on food, and in the case of Ecuador it’s between six and eight billion dollars a year,… we can now start to draw on that as a form of financing, and transformation of rural areas. That really what we’re focusing on now … how to bring consumer wealth to bear on transforming … rural communities. … We identified in rural areas in Ecuador a burgeoning movement that was created by some pioneering people in the city of ViraPap called the “canasta comunitarias,” or the “community food basket.” They’re basically poor urban neighborhoods that group to purchase together [so they can] save money. What we did was that we started to work with them so they started to question those purchases, so it wasn’t just about saving money, it was about getting more for their money; getting more nutrients or getting healthier food, or spending their money in such a way that it produces the sort of landscaped that want to see, or relationships they wanted in their communities."

                I visit a small, sustainable dairy with it's own forage and marketing operation in Southeastern Michigan; the Calder Brothers Dairy. Unsolicited advertisement; I've drank their milk for a while, and not just because it's delicious. The animals at the Calder dairy are kept very, very well, with good diets and a clean environment taking the place of daily antibiotics and artificial hormones. That's not all that the Calder dairy, or other small dairies like it, have to offer, though. This video may contain toxic levels of cuteness.

                  The political season is heating up just as we begin moving towards summer. The 2010 November election is going to be a critical moment for Californian’s, wild California King salmon, the State’s ecosystem, and California’s fiscal health. The $11.1 billon dollar water bond, crafted by special interests and passed in the darkness before dawn last Fall, is a measure that we believe must be defeated. This video helps frame the issues raised by the so-called Safe, Clean, and Reliable water bond. We urge a NO vote on the bond, and a big YES to getting more Salmon Water Now!

                      Timo's parents were one of a number of Finnish families who settled on the Maroochydore River on the Sunshine coast in the 1930s and 40s. They came in search of whatever work paid good money, and they were prepared to work hard. Before they'd even built their houses, they built saunas. Timo (who has his own sauna at home) says it's the only way to really feel clean after a hard day's work. Video Credits – Vanessa Milton, Open Producer, ABC Open South East NSW
