Daily Digest #61 - Lets Make it Happen

Great to see so many entries for the writing competition already this week. Some are so fantastic that they are in today's curation post. I guess the message that I am getting from all the ideas about creating zero world hunger, is that WE (all of us) should start making it happen today.

How can we feed the world, @bthebest7

"So for me, the answer is that we need to take responsibility to grow our own food, or buy locally, from a farmer we know and trust." These are the words of @bthebest7. I couldn't agree more, how can we hold people responsible and accountable at the same time?

Eating Cake, @tygertyger

Here is another, well articulated and sculpted entry for this weeks writing competition. This article is more hardline, I'm not sure we can ban animal agriculture, but the underlying philosophies are bang on!

Taking Responsibility, @sagescrub

Here is an author who is taking responsibility, they are investing in their own food chain. We all use garlic on a daily basis, so lets start growing it. I read somewhere this week that 80% of the worlds garlic is grown in China! (I can't remember the source, nor can I verify this), but tif that is true - wow! Here is an author making their food miles lower. [Read more here](https://steemit.com/@sagescrub/planting-garlic-late-is-better-than-never)

You are right about the garlic from China. It's been a few months ago, but on my personal account I did a post about it. I will NEVER again buy garlic that is already peeled. I saw a video where they use prisoners to peel the garlic and they literally bite the roots off the cloves, then just toss it into the bucket with all the other garlic to be packages and sold to us. GROSS!

It took me a few minutes to find the old post. The video I saw is part of a series that Netflix did, called ROTTEN. It is an eye opener and if you have access to Netflix, you should watch it.

They also bleach them I've read that somewhere...can't compare to real garlic!

Such good entries!
