    In 1999, 35 million small family plots produced 90% of Russia’s potatoes, 77% of vegetables, 87% of fruits, 59% of meat, 49% of milk — way to go, people!

    And since 1999, it seems things have only gotten better when it comes to small-scale agriculture in Russia.

    Did they have to do that in order to eat? Just wondering. Haven’t been to the link yet.

    Answer…….no they didn’t.Their Government helped them do it!That is inspiring…..

    “Essentially, what Russian gardeners do,” he concludes, “is demonstrate that gardeners can feed the world – and you do not need any GMOs, industrial farms, or any other technological gimmicks to guarantee everybody’s got enough food to eat. Bear in mind that Russia only has 110 days of growing season per year – so in the US, for example, gardeners’ output could be substantially greater. Today, however, the area taken up by lawns in the US is two times greater than that of Russia’s gardens – and it produces nothing but a multi-billion-dollar lawn care industry.”

    just read the link.Imagine what could be achieved if big multi national companies didn’t run the most of the planet!Instead of charging people a fortune for water and energy we could all be more self sufficient and take more responsibility for our own well being. I wonder what will happen when the western world runs out of food due to GM failure and soil collapse? Russia and Cuba will power on big time. Maybe that’s what they’re planning for. :shrug:
