The renown environmental horticulturalist, Florence Henderson, has established ecological farming certification that provides fair treatment to organic farmers. This provides a platform for both environmental and economic empowerment to those committed to scracthing a respectable living from the earth. And, locally grown and harvested organic produce that lends a higher standard of healthy eating practices conducive to quality development.
Something too often missed, and taken for granted, this quality of healthy eating practices, in urban areas where the Walmarts characteristic of affluent suburban digs takes a back seat to the corner liquor store.
Until we collectively invest in such urban means of community involvement, we will remain hostage to that substandard existence assuring our ranks as second class citizens.
