On the margins of the food crisis

There is an interesting piece out that makes me think a lot about our food case study in Langa, Cape Town that I just ran across. Bushmeat should be included in how we think about food security issues, it argues. Check it out.
The point is made that bushmeat stocks are running low, and are directly related to biodiversity questions. And it calls on us to consider how meat consumption in cities is also persisting in illegality and un-monitored food systems.

Also, thanks to Jody for this fact sheet on the health benefits of urban agriculture which I just read. Good stuff there too, courtesy of the folks at www.foodsecurity.org.

More later. For now, I’m off for my second round of raspberry picking in this gorgeous New Hampshire setting from which I am blogging!  Fall2004 003
