Supply chain and technology's picture

This is my first time on here since PASA, so am trying to figure it out. Here is what I am interested in:

I beleive global food system efficiencies such as technology can be used to address problems of local food economies and make them a larger part of the local food economy as a whole.

I beleive this will be a non linear system such as the internet (and this networking tool), as opposed to the old supply chain linear model. "Distributed supply chain mangment"

Thank you Jamie Oliver for your Food Revolution!!!!!

Michigan Organic Farming Collective's picture

If you are within a reasonable distance of the Thumb area of Michigan and would like to discuss the potential for going into business together to build an Organic Vegtable Farm together, please contact me: and learn more.

I am looking for a GROUP of people to take on a land contract on a 40 acre parcel of property to develop into a working model for people to learn from. I hope to find individuals who are just as passionate as I am about self-sufficiency in both resources and Energy! 

Welcome, new members!

The growing season has slowed rapidly with the cold weather - thankful for a long, rather mild fall which kept things green and growing longer! Grass has definitely slowed, as evident by the impatience of the cows on BOTH farms this morning - escapees at both places were our wake up call this AM.
