How many drops of rain does it take to make a rain shower?
In describing backyard farming in the documentary Food Patriots, a traditional farmer exclaimed “it’s only one drop in the ocean”! He was being interviewed by filmmakers Jeff Spitz and his wife, Jennifer Admur Spitz. Their family’s premise is that if you only grow 10% of what you eat, it’s a start that makes a huge difference.
The filmmakers have joined with thousands across the United States to take charge of what their family eat by growing food (fruits, vegetables, and chickens) in their backyards.
So whether we are voting for the next President or feeding the world. Each drop is necessary to accomplish that rain shower.
That is, each vote counts.
Each backyard matter.
Now, when it comes to feeding the world what is your one drop?
Mine start with growing wheatgrass and sunflower sprouts in my tiny New York apartment.
Where will you start?
