As the financial hub of the city crumbles, we have to find a way to build a food system that will make us all the more resilient to future shocks;
Oh, agreed, we do.
Now, what would be the most resilient system possible? That would be one where we get our food from a wide variety of places. One where we are not dependent upon the weather in a particular growing season, a particular location.
That is, we would move as far as we could to a global trading system to suppply our food. Not a system which relied upon what we can grow within 10, 50 or 100 miles of where we happen to be.
What is it that Rosie suggests? That we should move away from the global market and produce more of our food locally.
