Starting with the farmer in our own backyard is one POWERFUL way to take our power back and away from the Big Agra/Corps pushing GMOs and shoddy products on Americans.
Watch this awesome video on the Dirt to Shirt Movement in North Carolina. They are using cotton as their power-tool, but can you imagine when American farmers begin to produce and sell locally hemp products????
Hemp is an extremely durable, fast growing sustainable fiber that is drought tolerant. And unlike conventionally grown cotton, it doesn’t require massive quantities of pesticides and fertilizers to grow well.
Its growth rate is so rapid, it is ready for harvest in only 4 months- reaching a height of 6-12 feet, and producing 3-6 tons of dry fiber per acre.
What exciting times are ahead for the American consumers who fight back using intelligence, pride, and a little hard work … but what fun it will be to become independent of the market monopolies trying to keep consumers under their thumbs.
GO LOCAL FARMERS!
