If you eat food, maybe you've noticed groceries costs more and more. Well stock up now, food inflation is just ramping up.

It's not just the extra 200 million mouths to feed on the planet next year. Climate change is already re-arranging your food bill.

In North America, and around the world, one big driver is the record drought in the prime crop production
areas of the United States this year. Many meat producers gave up, selling off their herds, temporarily
keeping meat prices lower. The current cattle herd is the smallest since 1973. Once that sell-off goes through the supply chain, the high cost of corn and other grains will accelerate meat prices from 5 to 10% higher.

Grocery prices are up in the UK, Australia, India, China, the lot.

It's a perfect time to build community and learn how to grow your own. You don't have to leave the city to do it.

In 1942, hundreds of thousands of novice gardeners joined the Victory Garden movement, starting in Chicago. How did they do it?

Now Chicago is back, with this inspiring speech by Lamanda Joy, founder of the Peterson Garden Project. Speaking to the Great Lakes Bioneers conference on November 4, 2012, Lamanda explains the past, present, and future of urban food production by volunteers like you.

Take it, run with it where you live.

The excellent recording was made by Kelly Pierce of the Chicago Independent Media Center. Thanks Kelly!
