Cambridge, Ontario. “Doing my chores from seven in the morning until seven at night”.
Experiencing life as a volunteer part-time leisure farmer at my friend’s heritage farm. Sustainable living and ethical farming is hard work. Yet there’s something essential about growing your own food. Getting back into rhythm with the earth and animals that sustain you.
Adopt food sustainability as a lifestyle. Grow your own urban vegetable garden. Eat whole, raw and natural foods. Reduce your consumption of fast and overly processed foods. It you’re on a plant and animal diet source out free range, pasture raised/grain fed meats from your local farmers.

In many communities food resources go furthest when people produce their own food near to where it is consumed.
Taking it globally, hunger-relief organizations provide assistance not in the form of cans of food, but in technology, education and programs that teach sustainable farming.
I hope you enjoyed the photos.
