What Will be Bring to the Table?
Hi friends, how have you been? We hope this continues to find you safe and strong.
It’s been almost two months since the lockdown started, can you believe it? The May 15 deadline, and with it the possibility of the gradual transition from ECQ to general community quarantine, might be on the horizon.
Everywhere there is talk of a new normal. While we remain cautious, a large part of us is also hopeful about what it might look like in terms of our food system and how Good Food might be able to participate in its re-creation through community shared agriculture (CSA). As you know, CSA is animated by the belief that a food system built on social justice, health and wellbeing, and ecological responsibility depends on the mutual commitment between farmers and consumers. The pandemic threatens to sever this direct connection, but we are also seeing how people are waking up to their role as potential co-creators of this new food system, replacing self interest and fear of scarcity with a strong bias for the common good and the discovery of our own agency in shaping the future.
