Reading @wwf's prediction of an impending crash yesterday was a somber reminder for me of the lessons that my mentors instilled in me. We, as a global community, are in desperate times. We as a human species must learn to grow our own food, share our abundance and we need to plant a LOT of trees.
There may come a time when petroleum is no longer cheap. There may come a time when we no longer have easy access to industrial food. There may come a time when systems break down. Our earth is in a state of rapid desertification.
This challenge is a personal reminder to myself about spreading a message of the need for resilience, freedom, community and responsibility. HSCO can be a medium for this message. But we don't need to be desperate, we need to make change. And that change can be joyous and fulfilling while building resilience and independence.
I hope that this challenge can inspire us to inspire each other, share knowledge, resources and solutions. Inform those that are un-informed. Help those that need help. I personally am so past complaining about our problems. I am past anger. I am ready for action and ready to make a difference in our world. How well can we tune our message? How far can we send our message? How many can we inspire to choose resilience?
Challenge: What are you doing to claim food sovereignty for yourself or your community, and why?

1st place reward: 10 STEEM
